Synopsis

Rampage! An Aries Adventure by Julia Wills

Madcap, modern yet mythological adventure! Aries, the ghost of the ram of Golden Fleece fame, is feeling slighted that no one sees him as a real hero, even though on his first quest to Earth he thwarted wicked sorceress Medea. But Medea is plotting again, in the rainforests of the fabled land of El Dorado, and goddess Athena wants Aries and his best friend Alex, zookeeper of the Underworld, to stop her. But this time a 'professional hero' is being sent with them - none other than Aries' arch-nemesis, Jason! Things are worse than they know, however. Their friend Rose is in the Amazon too, searching for her lost father, and Medea needs Rose's help to restore her powers and wreak revenge, not only on Earth but also in the Underworld ...and Medea knows just how to manipulate Rose into doing it. Filled with laugh-out-loud humour, magic and mayhem, this courageous quest pits classic Greek myth and heroism against a modern world full of danger, and the deceptions lurking deep in the heart of the dark jungle.

Reviews

Praise for FLEECED! 'A great read - exciting, gripping and so funny. Full of wonderful characterisations. Children's fiction has a marvellous new comic voice'. --Pete Johnson Praise for FLEECED! 'This spirited, highly imaginative tale - in which characters from the Underworld of Greek myth are transported to modern London - is driven by fantastic incident, crammed with sparkling imagery, and laced with infectious humour. A lovely romp. Deserves to be a big hit'. --Michael Lawrence, author of the Jiggy McCue series.

About the Author

Julia Wills was born in Stafford and moved to Warwickshire via Australia and Oxford, which is not the straightest route. Born in January, she is a Capricorn - the zodiac goat with horns as curly as Aries'. Unlike Aries, though, she is not bald with a wobbly bottom. Well, not quite! Julia has worked for a big oil company, looking after their photo library; for a big sausage maker, helping decide which colour packets their sausages looked best in; and at a village primary school, where she discovered that what children want most from a book is a good giggle. As 'Miss Wills', her favourite lesson to teach was history, since it was there that she and the children first discovered the Ancient Greeks and their fabulous monsters.
