Description of this Book
Have you ever wondered why storytellers the world over weave new tales about Zeus and Hera, Aphrodite, Apollo, Andromeda and Perseus -- and the fearsome Medusa? What's so special that's made them famous for thousands and thousands of years? Lucy Coats' sparkling prose and Anthony Lewis's exciting and haunting pictures capture the daring and danger of past times as they explain how our own understanding of what people think and do has been influenced by adventures of long ago.
