Description of this Book

Atticus the Storyteller is still on the path to Troy and his destination - the Storytelling Festival - but he has a long way to go. But luckily, everywhere he goes and everyone he meets inspires a story that will entertain Melissa, his beloved donkey, his new friends and Atticus himself. In this collection, among others, he tells the stories of: Apollo and Daphne, Theseus and the Minotaur (one of the most popular Greek myths of all time), web-spinning Arachne and Midas, with his legendary golden touch.
