Mythology of the World

I went to a library that had fantastic books. But I was looking for a book based on mythology. I was looking for a book based on mythology because at school my class and I are learning about mythology. So i searched the library and i stumbled upon a book called: Mythology of the World. i skimmed throughout the book and stumbled upon these two stories:

The Trojan princess Cassandra, who could see the future, warned that the Achaean wooden horse was a trick; but because she had rejected the advances of the god Apollo, she was fated never to be believed.

Because her Titan husband, Cronus, had swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born, the mother goddess Rhea hid her last son, Zeus, from him. She then tricked Cronus into swallowing a stone instead of his son. Rhea gave birth in secret on Mount Dikte, and the newborn god was fed with the honey of the sacred bees that lived in the cave. He was then given into the care of two nymphs, the daughters of Melisseus, the “honey man.”
