From the publisher :

Written by Geraldine McCaughrean and featuring illustrations by Tony Ross, these books provide children with the perfect introduction to both Greek and Roman mythology.

Adapted into short stories, children aged 7 and over who love history and have developed an interest in myths will be excited to hear all about Theseus' battle with the murderous minotaur, Jason and his battle for the Golden Fleece, and Zeus' great war against the Titans!

These are thrilling page-turners, and the shorter nature of the stories makes them extra appealing. They'll come in handy for history lessons, too.
