Description

Hot on the heels of Mythology, the recent title in the best-selling "Ology" series, comes this full course in mythology from the pen of Lady Hestia Evans. Purportedly written for Lady Hestia's own children in the 19th century, the book has been updated by the publisher to be relevant to the interests of schoolchildren studying Ancient Greece today. With 25 chapters packed full of information on ancient Greek gods, monsters, heroes, and culture as a whole, plus suggestions for fun activities, this is a volume no aspiring mythologist should be without. This wiro-bound hardback book features four pages of stickers and several other paper novelties.

About Clint Twist

"With what trepidation I sat down to give my editorial attentions to what was clearly the masterwork of a very erudite man, should be obvious to all who read his book." So begins a brief letter from Dugald Steer to an Oxford friend, written in 1894. The letter goes on to explain how Mr. Steer was at that time dividing his time between his lodgings in West Wimbledon and the picturesque Surrey hamlet of Effingham, writing and editing volumes for children when a chance meeting with Dr. Ernest Drake in the Bull's Head Tavern in Dorking made him more than a little curious. Sceptical at first, he therefore took up Dr. Drake's offer to meet him at his house and tour St. Leonard's Forest, where he would have been introduced to the local dragon, had it not taken up residence in the basement of the old Mill building that was the reason for Dr. Drake's visit to Dorking. Mr. Steer then agreed to attend one of the Secret and Ancient Society of Dragonologists meetings organised by Dr. Drake where he became further involved in Dr. Drake's work, joining him and Douglas Carrel on his expedition to Scotland to try and estimate the hunting range of the Dornoch Wyrm. As he writes, this trip was, "a cause of some emotion, as many of my relatives, particularly the Ross branch, come from so near." Other books that Mr. Steer is known to have written or contributed to include a selection of children's illustrated titles such as Alison Jay's Picture This and just One More Story among many others.
