The Lovereading4Kids comment
Author of the best-selling Horrible Histories, Terry Deary here gives us a rollicking add-on to the story of Prometheus, the Titan who stole fire from the gods and gave it to the humans.
In a cracking time-travelling story full of jokey asides mostly contained in footnotes, The Fire King moves between the worlds of Mount Olympus and Eden City, a Dickensian world where Jim, a young orphan and petty criminal who aspires to be a novelist, meets up with Prometheus. An original adventure with a sound basis in mythology. (9+)
The Fire Thief by Terry Deary
Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and gave it to humans. Zeus and the gods then decided to punish him by chaining him to a rock and having an eagle tear out his liver every day. After 8000 years of agony, he breaks free. But the gods send the Eagle after him. Desperate to escape, he realises there is one escape route - to travel through time.
