About the Author

Thomas Bulfinch (1796-1867) wrote The Age of Fable in 1855 which is more commonly known as Bulfinch's Mythology. He is also the author of The Age of Chivalry and Legends of Charlemagne, both retellings of medieval tales. Bulfinch's versions of these classic Greek and Roman myths have introduced generations of readers to the exciting world of gods, goddesses, and heroes. Giles Greenfield was shortlisted for the Children's Book Award for his Owen and The Mountain. He has illustrated numerous other books, including Sasha and the Wolfchild, Chaucer the Cat and the Animal Pilgrims, and Greek Myths. Greenfield has also worked in advertising as a storyboard artist. He lives in Devon, England with his wife and daughter.
