Deborah Murrell has written extensively for both children and adults for more than fifteen years. She has also produced a CD-ROM entitled The History of the Ancient World. Her area of expertise is the history of the theater in ancient Rome and Greece.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5–Fourteen mostly double-page chapters cover topics ranging from the Minoans and Mycenaeans to city-states, from Greek myths to archaeology. The material is organized in a loose chronological order, ending with a very short chapter on Greece today. The story of Troy is summed up handily, with a large full-page depiction of the Greek army emerging from the Trojan horse. Short sentences and large type together with interesting facts make this a quick, enjoyable read, and the full-color artwork is a powerful draw. The images are abundant and eye-catching, particularly the huge statue of Athena inside the Parthenon will be awe-inspiring. And, Eureka! readers can see Archimedes, splashing in the tub, doing his bath math. While there isn't enough detail on any one subject for substantive reports, teachers looking for a way to hook students on ancient Greece will find that this title does the trick. Perfect supplementary classroom material.–Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
