Review:

This excellent collection of 16 favourite Greek myths catches all the magic of the stories for today's readers with its lively retellings and appealing illustrations. Included in this collection are the adventures of Jason, Theseus and Odysseus, the story of Icarus who flew too close to the sun, and King Midas whose touch turns everything to gold. In addition, there are also lesser-known stories such as Atalanta-- the goddess who can run faster than any man--and Arachne the spinner who boasts too much and is turned into a spider.

These stories have been wonderfully adapted by talented storyteller Geraldine McCaughrean who has captured all the thrills and drama of the original tales. Gloriously illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark this is a super collection of stories and a superb gift to give, read and enjoy.

Review:

Magnificent... ensuring another generation gets the best possible introduction to these classics. (Good Book Guide)
