Ancient Greek myths contain stories of frightening one-eyed giants -- the Cyclopes. This volume geared for basic readers describes these creatures and their disgusting habits, tells the famous story of how the hero Odysseus outwitted a cyclops, and traces images of the Cyclopes in movies and other modern cultural venues.
"This fun series - short books about creatures from mythology, film and television, popular culture and real life - now boasts 37 titles...aimed at fourth through eighth graders, the series uses a distinctive font for its titles and subheadings and each volume contains dozens of color photos and illustrations, a glossary of key terms and an annotated list of books and Web sites for further exploration."
