The Greek myths are among the greatest, most exciting stories ever told and feature some of the world's best loved heroes and heroines. In this book, you'll find the stories of Theseus, conqueror of the dreaded Minotaur; the mighty Heracles and his twelve tasks; the tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; Perseus, the Gorgon-slayer; the musician Arion and his rescue by the dolphins; Pandora and her little box of horrors; the feather-clad fliers Daedalus and Icarus; and the weaving contest between Arachne and the goddess Athene. Each of these tales has been retold with lively text and dramatic cartoon style, making them accessible and fun for young children.

Review:

Featured/recommended in Greece article * Travel for Kids * Eight legends retold with pith and punch ... The strip-cartoon style makes the stories feel new. * The Independent on Sunday * I defy anybody not to laugh out loud ... It's also uncannily accurate. * Books for Your Children * Terrific ... irresistibly entertaining. * The Daily Telegraph * Crammed with hilarious, minutely detailed strip drawing. Smashing. * The Guardian * Williams is one of our very best retellers of the classics. * The Independent on Sunday *
