Synopsis

Jason and the Argonauts by John Malam

Young readers will love these timeless tales of heroism, gods and monsters. Join Jason and his crew on his ship, the Argo, as he embarks on an epic voyage to bring back the Golden Fleece. He must take on high seas, hideous monsters, an army of skeletons and a wicked uncle. Will he succeed? The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to engage with the characters. 'Ask the storyteller' boxes 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.
