The speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. With fewer words than are found in typical mythology collections, and with plenty of great visual pointers, these texts are an ideal introduction to classic myths that reluctant readers would otherwise find challenging. Learn about different creation myths, and enjoy the famous story of the Hero Twins. Opening pages contain information on the importance of mythology and religion to the Aztec and Maya people and how this shaped how the Aztecs viewed the arrival of the Conquistadors. Closing pages contain further information on important deities and mythical figures from both cultures. It includes a glossary, an index and recommended further reading. It also helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14, and fits into Key Stage 2 English.
