Reviews

"* "Elegant, intelligent, funny, dramatic and totally absorbing; the perfect start to an early familiarity with Homer." The Guardian * "Brings clarity and humour to these ancient myths... Surely the most entertaining way to explore ancient history." Junior Education * "Likely to amuse and even absorb children for a good while... Has a kind of Where's Wally?-ish delight in visual minutiae." The Times Educational Supplement"
