Description

Step back in time to a golden age of storytelling in Ancient Greece. Drawing on the epic literature that has captivated the imagination for centuries, each story is skilfully brought to life, combining the talents of some of the leading children's authors and illustrators working today. Young readers will love these timeless tales of heroism, gods and monsters. Join Jason and his crew on his ship, the Argo, as he embarks on an epic voyage to bring back the Golden Fleece. He must take on high seas, hideous monsters, an army of skeletons and a wicked uncle. Will he succeed? The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to engage with the characters. 'Ask the storyteller' boxes give peripheral details about the narrative and the characters involved. The book features an introduction to Greek storytelling, a glossary and index, as well as a 'Who's who' section with a pronunciation guide.
