Puffin Pixels is a new collection of classics featuring pixelated, 8-bit coverartwork. For older readers nostalgic for video and computer games of the past, to kids looking for something a bit edgier on their bookshelf, Puffin Pixels will add a sophisticated, yet fresh, flair to the canon. Including tales of such classic heroes as Robin Hood and King Arthur, to swashbuckling adventures like Treasure Island, this is a grouping of literature that packs a punch!Some of the oldest and most famous stories in the world--the adventures of Perseus, the labours of Heracles, the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts, are vividly retold in this single, connected narrative of the Heroic Age, from the coming of the Immortals to the first fall of Troy. With fresh dialogue and a brisk pace, the myths of this version are enthrallingly vivid.
