LoveReading View on The Comic Strip Greatest Greek Myths

Fun for all readers, this is an excellent, accessible, highly illustrated and hugely entertaining introduction to the most famous Greek myths which have delighted listeners for centuries. No punches are pulled as the stories are told and their meanings are easy to understand from clues given in both text and illustrations. There is a useful Who’s Who of mythical monsters and gods at the beginning which provides a handy reference to the intricate relationships within the stories as they unfold.

The LoveReading Comment:

Murder, revenge, war, monsters, shipwreck, large wooden horses . . . the Greeks did it all first.  It’s always extremely handy to know about Greek myths. Not only are they everywhere – books, films, language, the collective subconscious – it will also make you look clever. Now from Jason and the Argonauts to Helen of Troy (via Achilles’ Heel), all the essential myths – plus a few brilliant but less well-known ones – have been condensed in one hilarious volume. Featuring eye-gouging, baby-eating, liver-pecking and wooden horses, these are some of the most exciting and satisfying tales ever told . . . from the stories that created Heroes, invented Amazons, and brought you the Cyclops, centaurs and ladies with snakes in their hair.  Just click here to view the other titles in the brilliantly comic ‘Comic Strip’ series, perfect for anyone from 8 to 80.
