The Lovereading4Kids comment
The diminutive hero Tom Trueheart is back for a fabulously inventive new adventure. His important mission this time is to rescue his father from Jack, the notorious Giant-Killer. To do so, little Tom Trueheart must brave the dangerous and unknown territory of the Land of Myths and Legends, a wild country where all kinds of terrible things may happen. Tom is well-known for his bravery but will he be able to overcome some of the best-known mythological creatures including the Minotaur lurking in his labyrinth? Ian Beck makes a wonderful new story while playing delightfully with some old ones.
The LoveReading Comment:
Join Tom Trueheart in his third epic adventure as he faces dangers and creatures galore in the Land of Myths and Legends. Written by the internationally acclaimed author Ian Beck and illustrated by him too with absolutely beautiful and striking silhouette imagery, the characters and the creatures you meet will transport you into this other world. This is a great series to read aloud to younger children and for those 7+ readers to enjoy themselves when tucked up in bed. If you buy the hardback editions they are beautifully packaged and perfect to give as a gift. Click here to see Ian’s other books including the two earlier Tom Trueheart titles.
Tom Trueheart and the Land of Myths and Legends by Ian Beck
Tom is determined to rescue his father, Jack the Giant-Killer, from the clutches of the dastardly Ormestone. But to do so he will have to venture into the most dangerous territory of all-the Land of Myths and Legends. Tom is brave and true, but can he overcome such terrors as the ferocious Norse dragon, an angry Cyclops and-worst of all-the hungry Minotaur waiting in the centre of the labyrinth? Join Tom in his third epic adventure as he faces dangers and creatures galore in the land of Myths and Legends.
'a delightful book, and one with a wide potential audience ... a story with a timeless quality and great charm for bedtime reading upwards.'
'a pleasure to hold, read aloud and explore'
'the makings of a modern classic. The book is beautifully produced and the story itself has everything: pace, humour, a likeable hero and just the right amount of excitement to keep you turning the pages.'
