Jason and the Argonauts, written by John Malam and illustrated by David Antram is part of Sandy Creek/Sterling's Ancient Greek Myths series. Unlike most adaptations for children, this version includes the darkest aspects of the Jason myth. The illustrations and the accompanying text do an excellent job of relating the tale. If you're a storyteller or plan on running an RPG in this setting, this book would serve as an excellent resource. 


The Amazing Adventures of Jason and the Golden Fleece, retold by Claudia Zeff and illustrated by Stephen Cartwright is a volume in the Usborne/Hayes World Legends series. The illustrations and the accompanying text effectively move the story. This is a sanitized version of the legend, excellent for younger children.
