Percy Jackson's Greek Gods by Rick Riordan
This was a wonderful group of short tales regarding each of the 12 main Olympian Gods and how they came to rule Mount Olympus. We hear how the main 3 (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) defeated the Titans, and how the areas - sky, seas, and underworld were divided up.
There were also stories of the twins of Apollo and Artemis and how Athena was born from Zeus' head, Aphrodite's marriage to Hephaestus, Hera's jealous reactions, and how Hermes acquired is miraculous shoes.
Great background for the Olympian series.
