"Excellent yarn with believable characters that are likeable, especially Eddie. Can't wait for the next one!" Elizabeth Horne, Amazon.

"Brilliant read, kept me entertained right to the end," primrosie, Amazon.

"Both my 9 year old son and myself devoured this book in a matter of days. A well written, entertaining book made delightful by Mr Craske's wit and humour throughout," Mrs V R Jacob, Amazon.

"Mythbound: The Argonaut's Almanac Volume One by Darren Craske in one word? Awesome. More than one word? One of the best young adult novels I have ever read, period," Jamieson Wolf, Amazon.

"So easy to read yet so intelligent at the same time (yes, even though this is a kid's book!)"

13 year-old Eddie Sparks is in trouble at school... constantly.

So when his History teacher gives him a choice: complete a school assignment on myths and legends in only 48 hours or get a month's detention, for Eddie there really isn't any choice at all.

Heading to his local library, all Eddie cares about is finding a book that will solve all of his problems, but when the caretaker entrusts him with 'The Argonaut's Almanac', he realizes that his problems have only just begun - for the caretaker is far more than just a caretaker, and the book is far more than just a book, and now it's Eddie's job to protect it, for if anything should ever happen to the almanac, it would have an instant (and catastrophic) affect on the world of Mythopolis, home to all manner of mythological marvels.

With the aid of the most unlikely of guides, Eddie embarks upon an adventure that pushes his imagination to its limits, along the way making friends with a chocolate-loving ogre, a constipated Minotaur, and a rebellious princess with a chip on her shoulder.

Eddie learns that decades before, Mythopolis was plunged into despair under the rule of the Dread Witch, Morgana le Fay, and her son Mordred the Morgue-Filler. It was the darkest moment in history; a time of such devastation that everyone thought they would never see its like again.

Everyone was wrong...
