Description

Beautiful book, bought off the back of my son's enjoyment of the King Arthur book by the same author. The stories include ‘Orpheus and Eurydice’, ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’, ‘Perseus and the Gorgon’s Head’.

Williams depicts the tales of Theseus and the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, and six other classics from Ancient Greece. Watch in awe as the classic characters leap to life: Perseus the Gorgon-slayer, the dreaded Minotaur, ill-fated Icarus, terrible Medusa and the awe-inspiring goddess Athene! If you are under 16, please obtain your parent/guardian’s permission before submitting or ask your parent/guardian to submit on your behalf. In this collection, Marcia Williams offers a fun but faithful retelling of eight myths using simple language and her signature comic-strip format. The pithy comments made by the characters take away focus from the accuracy and visual appeal of these myths.

Then again, I was a weird child, who was fascinated with disasters and chaos, like Chernobyl, the Titanic, World War II, and tornadoes. I think this is better for children to read by themselves and I’d go for ‘The Orchard Book of Greek Myths’ if you’re going to read to the kids. It was this book that planted the seed that would eventually sprout and blossom into my ongoing love for Ancient Grecian mythology—additionally probably my earliest memory of being made aware in print that sometimes really shit things happen to unassuming people for almost no reason whatsoever, and that there's almost nothing you can do to fight it, à la Olympus style. The violence is there though only shown with a drip of blood here and there and obviously dead bodies; this may be an issue with some parents. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition.

There were some new myths like "Arion and the Dolphins" and "Orpheus and Eurydice" that I never heard of before reading this book.
