Uncover the lives of 50 powerful gods and goddess, Earth-dwelling mortals and terrifying monsters as we journey back in time to ancient Greece.
When I started high school one of the lessons on my timetable was Classics. A lesson dedicated to studying Greek Mythology. Set aside from being covered in my usual history lessons, Classics lessons offered me the chance to delve deeper into the world of ancient Greece. Covering the gods and goddesses, the monsters and the mortals that made up that era.
It was one of my favourite lessons, as learnt more about each topic I was more and more fascinated about the stories, the legends, the myths that surrounded each of the gods. Unfortunately, a change in high schools when we relocated from Cumbria to Norfolk meant that I wasn’t able to continue studying ancient Greece. Something that I would have liked the option to pursue.
So when the children tell me that they are focusing on ancient Greece or a particular Greek god, I’m always happy to help. Although my knowledge is a little rusty, to say the least, so thankfully the new Mythologica: An encyclopaedia of gods, monsters and mortals is the perfect companion to have for helping with studies or just because you wish to know more about 50 of the god, monsters and mortals from Greek mythology.
From the fearless Athena and her meddlesome ways to the brace and bold Odysseus and his remarkable journey home, this is the perfect introduction to 50 of the most exciting characters of ancient Greek mythology.
Featuring full-colour artwork from the brilliantly talented Victoria Topping and written by Steve Kershaw, prepare to be amazed as you uncover the epic, heroic and sometimes terrible lives of mortals, monsters and gods.
