Jason and the Golden Fleece by Nel Yomtov


Jason and the Golden Fleece by Nel Yomtov

Compelling heroic tales from the ancient world, retold in dynamic graphic format. Simple text is combined with exciting artwork to help less confident readers enjoy some of the world's classic myths! Deepend understanding and enjoyment using the bonus material section which offers oral discussion questions, ideas for creative writing tasks and author and illustrator profiles. Reading age: 8-10 years; Interest age: 8-14 years. Brave Jason comes to claim his throne, but the old king will not give up his rule so easily! To prove his worth, Jason must find the greatest treasure in the world, the Golden Fleece, facing rampaging bears, the menacing flying Harpies, and a six-headed monster flanked by a deadly whirlpool along the way!


This graphic adaption was all we hoped it would be! A well-told, detailed retelling written in chapters. Most of the exciting bits of the journey are there and the story keeps well to the original myth ... The illustrations are gorgeous and it is wonderful to see the story brought to life before your eyes in this way. The illustrator's style is a very modern comic book look though Jason is drawn in an almost anime style though his features stay recognizably masculine. I highly recommend this book and others in the myth series, especially to boys who are reluctant readers Back to Books Blog - Nicola Mannins November 6, 2009
