Atalanta is the fastest runner in the world but will only marry the man who can beat her in a race; Perseus must destroy the snake-headed gorgon, Medusa; Pandora has been given the gift of curiosity, what will happen if she opens the forbidden magic jar? Pegasus, the miraculous flying horse, has never been tamed, can Bellerophon catch him? These ten wonderful tales from the world of Greek mythology are perfect for reading aloud to younger children. The stories are told by Sally Pomme Clayton, one of the UK's most spellbinding storytellers, with beautiful, glowing illustrations by the award-winning artist Jane Ray. Included are notes and a map showing the real places in Greece that are connected with the stories.
