In this classic of children’s literature, Leon Garfield and Edward Blishen retell some of the most famous Greek myths - from the violent beginnings of the gods to the creation of man in one continuous story.

A stunning version, the gods of Olympus are brought to life and this book deservedly was a winner of the 1970 Carnegie Medal.

With atmospheric drawings by Charles Keening complementing the rich text, this will be treasured by older children. Priced at £12.99 in paperback, it’s published by Doubleday.
