Embrace your inner geek with Puffin Pixels

Puffin Pixels
is a new collection of classics featuring pixelated, 8-bit video game cover artwork. Whether you’re an adult nostalgic for video and computer games of the past, a teen looking for something edgy for your bookshelf, or just someone who tends to divert from the mainstream—Puffin Pixels adds a sophisticated, fresh, flair to the canon to satisfy every reader.

These stories include the great myths - of Amen-Ra, who created all the creatures in the world; of Isis, seaching the waters for her dead husband Osiris; of the Bennu Bird and the Book of Thoth. But there are also tales told for pleasure about magic, treasure and adventure - even the first ever Cinderella story.

About the Author:

Roger Lancelyn Green was born in 1918 and lived in Oxford and at his family home in Cheshire, which the Greens had owned for more than 900 years. He loved storytelling and was fascinated by traditional fairy tales, myths and legends from around the world. He was a professional actor, a librarian and a teacher. His retellings include Egyptian, Greek and Norse legends, plus a retelling of Robin Hood. He also wrote many books for adults, including a biography of his friend C. S. Lewis, creator of the The Chronicles of Narnia. Roger Lancelyn Green died in 1987.

Michael Myers is an illustrator, visual designer, and 2d/3d animator who has developed graphics for mobile devices, online games, and even t-shirts, many of which were created using his pixel art technique. He lives in Ames, Iowa and is the Creative Director at Drawsgood, Inc. View his artwork at www.drawsgood.com and follow him on Twitter @drawsgood.

Review:

The Puffin Classics series is a perfect marriage of the old and the new. Enjoy some of the best books from the past and find out why and how they inspired some of the best writers of the present. -- Julia Eccleshare Lovereading4Kids
