" Read: Kuan Yin, the Compassionate; Durga, the Warrior Goddess; Isis, Mistress of Life and Death " said.

" Wonderful resource if you're looking for bedtime stories that showcase powerful women to read to little ears. I wondered about the accuracy of 1 or 2 of them. GORGEOUS illustrations. " said.

" Beautiful artwork, interesting stories. The afterword by the writer and artist is the best part of the book. " said.

" I was disappointed with this book about goddesses from around the world. The stories were too long, trying to encapsulate too much about the various goddess stories, thus losing the core of the story for me. " said.

" A lovely mother-daughter collaboration collecting goddess stories from various cultures around the world. Older children will be interested to see how certain stories share similarities with other familiar tales (Inanna is a Sumerian goddess whose story contains aspects of Persephone's tale). The illustrations, Hyman's last, are different from her usual work in that they are collages, but they still have that magical quality all her work holds. " said.

"This book is obviously written for younger kids, but I still enjoyed it. Simple writing style aside, the ten legends of goddesses from all around the world were well-portrayed. My favorite feature of this book was the art. Five stars for the illustrations, beautiful collages of photos, paper, cloth, and paint. The artist also did a good job of capturing and adapting the art styles of the various cultures.

" A beautiful collection of goddess myths, drawn from around the world, with each story accompanied by one of Trina Schart Hyman’s gorgeous illustrations. " said.

" Absolutely AMAZING!!! A glimpse of ancient womanhood and great for folklore fans like me! The artwork was beautiful and the stories were well picked; though there is a less gory version of the Sedna story inBest-Loved Folktales of the World. " said.
