Description

Following several years in one of the city's schools, your father wants you to prove yourself at the most famous athletic competition of all - the Olympics. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding the understanding of several aspects of Ancient Greek life, including sport, education, social structure and religion. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts.
