Synopsis

Basher History: Mythology by Mary Budzik

The myths and legends of the ancient world still fascinate and entertain people the world over. Stories of gods and goddesses have a timeless appeal that captures the attention of generation after generation of children. Basher History: Mythology gives a fresh look to some of the key characters from famous myths and legends - meet Zeus, father of the Greek gods; Norse Freyja, goddess of love, beauty, war and death; and Egyptian Bastet, goddess of cats, along with many many others. A spread about Roman gods provides a handy key to the relationship between Greek gods and their Roman equivalents.
