Synopsis

Avoid Entering the Greek Olympics by Michael Ford

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding the understanding of several aspects of Ancient Greek life, including sport, education, social structure and religion. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts. This title is relevant to Key Stage 2 history and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
