Synopsis

Greek Hero by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Be a fly on the wall in the time of the ancient Greeks. Follow Greek warrior Agathon on his way home from battle, listen to Ariston tell tales of brave Odysseus, learn Alpha to Omega with mischievous Hektor and hear the crowd roar as you watch Olympic athletes sprint for the finishing-line. These pages are packed full of up-to-date information about the world of the ancient Greeks from the latest archaeological discoveries, so you can see history as it really happened!

Reviews

This book and others in the series deserve to be placed with the best history books for young learners as they give such a strong sense of what it might have been like to have lived at a particular time in history. They also show that your lifestyle depends very much on which particular social or work group you belong to. The narrative or story form captures the interest of young readers and provides a strong context for learning about lifestyle and customs at a particular time. || The illustrations are lively, cheerful and bright with scribbled notes on and around them to provide further information. The sketchbook format has an energy and a warmth which really brings history to life. || A perfect fusion of words and images. The text features a cast of characters and is animated with dierct speech, while the illustrations are dynamic and expressive. This is a super antidote to the flat presentation of much non-fiction that fails to engage at an emotional level.
