A wonderful 21st anniversary edition of this classic collection of sixteen favourite Greek myths. Jenny Downham, January 2011 Guest Editor, chose this book: "I was given a book of Greek myths by my brother for my 11th birthday, I reread it so many times it fell apart in my hands and all these years later, I can still recall the stories vividly. In this version, the stories have been skillfully adapted by Geraldine McCaughrean. It has all my favourites in it and the illustrations are stunning." Ths is also one of Michael Rosen's favourites: "Superheroes battle with demons, gods intervene in our pleasures and fears – a bit like the spectres in our minds going through daily life, really – beautifully retold here."
