I just rediscovered _D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths_ which turned out to be
the one I devoured as a child. Or, rather, the only one I specifically
remember reading. Fascinating how NOT heroic Hercules turned out to be.
But the kids loved it. Other than this, I'm also uncertain about sources.
I think it's because the stories were so interesting that I didn't pay
attention to where I was reading them. I have a vague memory of reading a
very comprehensive Norse mythology in a dark-blue binding...nothing more.
