Product description

This is a beautifully written and illustrated collection of Greek myths containing seventeen famous tales full of love, loss, greed, envy and bravery. Beautifully written by Ann Turnbull and illustrated by Sarah Young, this collection of seventeen Greek myths is truly something to treasure. The timeless stories of "Theseus and the Minotaur", "Persephone", "King Midas", "Ariadne", "Orpheus and Eurydice", and "Echo and Narcissus" are told with great freshness and there is a good balance between the gentler myths and the ones packed with battles and monsters. This is a wonderful collection and a wonderful introduction into the fascinating world of Greek mythology brought to life by one of our finest writers and an exciting new illustrator.
