The sun god riding his fiery chariot through the sky, the moon goddess pausing in the night to smile at the forever-sleeping Endymion, Odin's sacrifice of his eye at the well, Thor struggling to regain his magic hammer - these are among the seven myths deftly recreated in William R. Keyser's Days of the Week. Each myth is told with a simplified plot and a single unifying theme to show how our English days of the week got their names. Taken from ancient Greek, Nordic, and Roman lore, these adventure stories introduce younger readers to the riches of mythology in a meaningful way. Howard Simon's vivid drawings capture the power and splendor of these intriguing creatures and their bold exploits.
