Originally published in Britain some two decades ago, these delightful retellings by Geraldine McCaughrean introduce Greek and Roman myths to readers 7 to 10, with drawings throughout by Hans Christian Andersen Award nominee Tony Ross—some dramatic, some hilarious. Three of the volumes (Perseus and the Gorgon Medusa, The Wooden Horse, and The Adventures of Odysseus) present epic tales, while the other thirteen books are collections of shorter myths, including Theseus and the Minotaur, Romulus and Remus, Zeus versus the Titans, Athena and the Olive Tree, and of course Daedalus and Icarus.
