LoveReading View on Greek Myths

This title is a beautifully written and illustrated collection of Greek myths containing seventeen famous tales full of love, loss, greed, envy and bravery.

Greek Myths Press Reviews

'One word keeps coming to mind when looking at this book: lavish. Sixteen well-known stories are presented here, in a book positively overflowing with brightly coloured illustrations. Generous use of gold makes the book feel even more special, and the only danger, if you buy it for a child, is that you may not be able to bring yourself to give it away.' - The Bookbag.co.uk

'Ann Turnbull's re-tellings are as elegant as the book's classically influenced illustrations by Sarah Young... The production - from the cover dusted with shimmering gold to the white text on the back page when Orpheus enters the underworld - makes this volume a work of art.'  Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

'A generous large-format hardback that feels like a treat. Here are some of the greatest stories ever told... A book for keeps.' The Herald

Paper always seemed to be scarce in those days, but I used to write stories on the unused pages left in old school exercise books, or even on the backs of opened-out envelopes. In my early teens two things happened that ...
