Encyclopedia Mythologica: Gods and Heroes Pop-Up by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart (Hardback)
The creators of the New York Times best-selling Encyclopedia Prehistorica series offer a mythic look at the mysteries of the past with an entire pantheon of remarkable pop-ups.
For all of recorded history, humans have sought to understand Earth’s mysteries in the realm of the divine — and aspired to conduct themselves as heroes. Only gods, of course, could push the sun across the sky,forge entire continents, and impel mountains to touch the clouds. In this stunning volume, the incomparable team of Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda take us to Ra-Atum’s land in Ancient Egypt; above the Grecian clouds to Zeus’s Mount Olympus; up to Norse god Odin’s frozen north; to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor sits in the heavens; into the wilds of Oceania, where Pele’s volcanic rage simmers below the earth; and to many more lands and times, all rich with sacred myths and legends.

"This is an amazing book; I liked the detail and illustrations in this book. Once I opened it I couldn’t put it down. The book is very intricate and it is one of the most innovate interactive popup book I have read. The author filled this book with interesting information about ancient heroes and mythical legends across the world. The book explores century’s old myths and legends from Ancient Egypt, Zeu’s Kingdom on Mount Olympus, the famous city covered in water Atlantis and it also ventures to the Far East. I believe that this book would be excellent for History and for inspiring children’s imaginations. It would be great for children at Key Stage 2 level because they would be old enough to navigate the book."
"What a beautiful book! I spent nearly an hour poring over this amazing book at the bookstore and have put it on my Amazon wishlist. I would (and plan to) use this in the classroom for students to enjoy during SSR time. Middle school students love mythology and this book spans many cultures and stories. The only drawback is that it has to be treated gently in order to last for years."
