Synopsis

Monstrous Myths: Terrible Tales of Ancient Egypt by Clare Hibbert

The myths and legends of Ancient Egypt are a rich source of storytelling, culture and history. Children will meet heroes, gods and goddesses and scary monsters. Some they will be familiar with and some they may discover for the first time!Told in a humorous style but these books are jam-packed with facts about the beliefs of ancient cultures. A variety of imaginative visual and textual devices are used to great effect. For example, some stories are styled as newspaper reports, while others are made to look like recipes. A series of six books, Monstrous Myths will bring out the humour, horror and heroism of some fantastic stories.
