The Lovereading4Kids comment
Enormous in its scope and in the wealth of information it offers, Mythology is a treasure trove of fact and fiction which, taken together, brings the mythology of Ancient Greece powerfully to life. Open flaps to reveal fascinating snippets of information including the plan of an ancient temple and a pop-up Pandora’s Box. There’s a piece of the golden fleece, golden oak leaves for fortune telling, an interactive Minotaur’s maze and a golden quill pen. A truly sumptuous tome that will give adults and children alike hours of delight to pore over. Also available in the 'Ology' series are Dragonology, Pirateology, Monsterology, and Wizardology.
Mythology by Dugald Steer
Mythology is the ultimate book of gods, heroes, monsters and mythical beasts of ancient Greece. It is packed with novelties including a gold quill and writing paper, a pop-up Pandora’s Box and golden oak leaves for fortune telling.
Written by Lady Hestia Evans in 1825, Mythology is based on the record of her travels through Greece, where she discovers the wonders of the ancient myths: the tales of mighty gods and fearless heroes who battle the merciless beasts of legend.
It is only when Ladia Hestia's friend John Oro uses her book as a guide for his own trip to Greece, annotating as he travels, that you begin to realise that the true power of these immortal gods might not be constrained to the past . . .
With his insatiable appetite for the fascinating antiquities he discovers, can John control his greed, or will he suffer the wrath of a vengeful ancient god.
Here the Ology series ventures further back in history than ever before, to the time of gods and monsters, myths and legends, to produce a Pandora's Box of information, excitement and intrigue.
“A feast of a book, Mythology is a wonderfully creative spoof of authenticity. Put together as diaries … it’s really a bumper book of information. Greek mythology , art and architecture, language, pottery and much more are all touched on in a variety of creative ways, making it perfect for absorbing plenty of facts while gently browsing.” - The Guardian
“Dugald Steer’s gorgeous Mythology and Field Guide to Dragons (Templar) look like two of the most covetable titles you’ll see on the shelves”. - Publishing News
