Brilliant introduction to Mythology,
This review is from: The Kingfisher Book of Mythology: Gods, Godesses and Heroes from Around the World (Paperback)
I was given this as a Christmas present when I was about seven. I loved the stunning illustrations and the stories it describes. It captivated and fascinated me then and still does today.
The book is organised into geographical sections so that each culture from around the world has its own chapter with descriptions of the various gods, goddesses and mythical beings associated with it. Each page is a joy to read as they all feature at least one beautiful illustration.
I found this book very useful and informative when I was doing various history and religious studies projects at both primary and secondary school. It was great fun telling my classmates some of the gruesome and amusing tales I'd read about!
Highly recommended for any youngster with an imagination and a love for strange and colourful stories.
