              The perfect book for young readers looking for answers to some of life's biggest questions. Thousands of years ago, ancient philosophers asked some important questions: Where do we come from? What is right and what is wrong? Am I real? and What is the point of existence? These qu...estions have gone on to spark passionate debates about our existence and how we understand the world around us. In this fun and engaging introduction to philosophy, readers aged 11 and up will be introduced to a variety of philosophical ideas through the teachings of Plato, Confucius, Simone de Beauvoir, and many more. Vibrant, reader-friendly illustrations bring the history of ideas and thinking to life, from metaphysics to moral imperatives. With biographies of the most influential philosophers from around the world, young readers will explore the questions and answers that have been fundamental to the development of scientific study, logical thinking, religious beliefs, laws and governance, and much more. Thought experiments peppered throughout will help connect readers with the ideas presented so they can apply them to their own lives.

              From lightning-wielding Zeus to Thor, god of thunder, heroes, gods, and monsters are brought to life in these retellings of myths from around the world. Myths and Legends is a kids' book that invites you to explore all the well-known stories from Greek mythology, African mytholog...y, and Norse mythology, and others across more than 100 stories. Discover the fascinating tales about Anansi, the African trickster god who takes the form of a spider; Changing Woman, the Navajo nature goddess who changes her dress with the seasons; or Tane, the Maori forest god who first brought death to the world. Read about ferocious, man-eating monsters such as the Minotaur, Baba Yaga, and Fafnir the dragon, and the legendary heroes that fought them, like Perseus, Rama, and Gilgamesh. Also included are Robin Hood, the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the Mahabharata, Aztec mythology, and myths and legends from across Asia. In addition to offering the retellings themselves, Myths and Legends: A Visual Encyclopedia investigates the meanings of these primal stories, examining why these tales have stood the test of time over thousands of years. Features and panels on modern retellings, such as China's The Monkey King and Marvel's Thor, help to show why these myths are still relevant to our lives today.
