About this deal

I felt that I had seen all the same things before, I wish she would have done something that was more eye catching. This would also benefit the children as they could also spend a lesson in making their own storyboard/comic strip of retelling a Greek Myth. Marcia Williams is known for her adaptation of classic stories into a graphic novel style books for younger readers.

Then again, I was a weird child, who was fascinated with disasters and chaos, like Chernobyl, the Titanic, World War II, and tornadoes. Reason for Reading: All my readers should know by now that mythology is a favourite subject of mine, especially Greek. The way this book is designed is perfect for introducing Greek Mythogy at a young age expanding their understanding of culture and classic "old school" literature.This book is a collection of some of the most famous and classic greek myths including "Pandora's Box," "Arion and the Dolphins," "Orpheus and Eurydice," "The Twelve Tasks of Hercules," Daedalus and Icarus," "Perseus and the Gorgon's Head," "Theseus and the Minotaure," and "Arachne Versus Athena.

As this is a comic style book, the pictures vary in sizes and it does appear to seem quite busy that there is a lot going on within the pictures yet I find that this would attract the children because they can look deeper into the pictures and see what is happening.

Evaluation of Literary Elements: Though it may not be the most thorough retelling of these myths, I do think that the comic-book style of these myths would interest a child. This makes it hard to go off of the reviews since the other review gushed about the comic-book style of these myths. In this book, you’ll find the stories of Theseus, conqueror of the dreaded Minotaur; the mighty Heracles and his twelve tasks; the tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; Perseus, the Gorgon-slayer; the musician Arion and his rescue by the dolphins; Pandora and her little box of horrors; the feather-clad fliers Daedalus and Icarus; and the weaving contest between Arachne and the goddess Athene.

I had heard some of the myths before but it was enjoyable to read about new characters and creatures.Marcia Williams traveled extensively as a child and was educated in Sussex, England, and Switzerland. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Or Zeus takes revenge on Prometheus, and extinguishes every spark of fire on earth, causing the hungry populace to eat nothing but salad.
