Each page flows in lines of the comic strip with a written narrative underneath each strip and within the frames bubbles are used to emphasize the story and generally add silly humour to the character's reactions to what is going on around them.

From Shakespeare and Dickens to the Canterbury Tales and Greek Myths, her humorous comic-strip illustration is hugely popular all over the globe. Has the same healthy attitude of seriousness mixed with irreverence as the Greeks themselves; every page crammed with hilarious, minutely detailed strip drawings.

I really liked that there were myths I was not too familiar with, and that they were all focused on different characters. Evaluation of Literary Elements: Though it may not be the most thorough retelling of these myths, I do think that the comic-book style of these myths would interest a child.and TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE Marcia Williams introduces young readers to the world of William Shakespeare's plays.

It was enjoyable for me to get a refresher on some of the myths I've heard about before as well as learn new myths.
