"Galloway has created two epic tales of long ago, a time with more than its share of mystical happenings and spirited acts of bravery This is the stuff kids were made for. Both Atalanta and Aleta and the Queen have strong "replay" values and are appropriate for a wide range of ages. . . . The whole family will enjoy Galloway's soon-to-be classic tales." Hadley Dyer, CHILDREN'S BOOK NEWS, v. 19, p. 33, Oct. 1996

"powerfully underscores the psychological conflicts Atalanta experiences as she struggles to know herself and where her duty lies." Patricia Lothrop Green, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, Nov. 1995

"The conclusion to the story is surprising and unpredictable." Arlene Perly Rae, TORONTO STAR, Sept. 9, 1995

"One of the first in a series designed to make Greek myths accessible to young readers. If Atalanta is an indication of overall quality, these books will succeed admirably." Janet McNaughton, QUILL AND QUIRE, October 1995
