The Wooden Horse of Troy by John Malam, Peter Rutherford

Young readers will love these timeless tales of heroism, gods and monsters. The Trojan prince Paris has abducted Helen, the beautiful wife of King Menelaus. It is a crime that will unite all of Greece's armies against the kingdom of Troy. In a 10 year siege, brave warriors will fight and both sides will suffer great bloodshed. It contains humorous cartoon-style illustrations and adopts a narrative approach that encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the characters. It includes 'Ask the storyteller' boxes, which give peripheral details about the narrative and the characters involved. The book features an introduction to Greek storytelling, a glossary and index, as well as a 'Who's who' section with a pronunciation guide. It supports Key Stage 2 History and English and helps achieve the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
