By Croft, MalcolmIllustrated by Weighill, Damien
Fearless heroes, all-powerful gods, terrifying monsters: the world of mythology is endlessly fascinating. And there's a lot to find out about. This nifty little book will make you a mythology expert quicker than it takes a dragon to incinerate a knight. Learn how Perseus avoided ...being turned to stone and defeated Medusa, and experience the ins and outs of the Trojan War. Discover why the Norse gods were historical super-heroes, and marvel at the Rainbow Serpent myths of indigenous Australian peoples. Find out how ancient Egyptians worshipped the sun, and explore the many places where it's said King Arthur might have lived. Ancient myths are still relevant to today's society, explaining traditions and giving lasting moral lessons. But most of all, they're entertaining adventures that connect us to the past - and this book is the perfect introduction to how cool mythology really is. Word count: 20,000Read more
