Glorious pop-up spreads reveal the characters at the heart of some of the best loved myths from Egypt, Greece, the frozen Norselands and the mysteries of Asia. A pop-up of the Greek gods and goddesses in their celestial palace at the top of Mount Olympus makes an attractive way of identifying the great characters of Zeus the King and Hera his jealous Queen.
The divine Encyclopedia Mythologica series grows mightier still, as gods and heroes meet the kings of pop-up. Continuing the thrilling new mythological pop-up trilogy, the masterminds behind the phenomenal Encyclopedia Prehistorica turn their attention to the dazzling and the divine, bringing to life the Gods and Heroes of myth and legend.
This stunning book takes the intrepid reader on a grand pop-up tour of centuries-old myths and legends from across the globe. You can explore the lush banks of the Nile of Ancient Egypt, and visit Zeus' kingdom on Mount Olympus, high above the clouds of Ancient Greece.
