I loved every aspect of it, from its pocket-sized format, through the red and black cartoon strips to the highly entertaining and original telling of classic Greek myths. The book lives up to its claim on the blurb, featuring: `Eye-gouging, Liver-pecking' and `Hours of fun for everyone from scholars to anyone who thinks a myth is a female moth.'
Meet Jason and trace his epic voyage, acquaint yourself with Helen of Troy, find out why a wooden horse was so important and discover how a woman with snakes for hair lost her head to the noble Perseus. All human emotions are reflected, from love through hate to anger and revenge.
The machinations of the gods can be tricky for a novice to follow, but to assist the reader, this book starts with a comprehensive Who's Who of Ancient Greece, profiling gods, monsters, muses, nymphs, fates and furies. This forms a useful reference guide whilst reading the narrative.
Although these are ancient, epic stories, a contemporary feel is created by the effective partnership of text and image. The book will leave readers laughing from start to finish. It should be available in every Junior School Library, class bookshelf and Ancient Greek topic box.
