Atticus the Storyteller: 100 Stories from Greece

(2002)
A collection of stories by

 
Join Atticus on his journey through Ancient Greece as he retells 100 of the greatest Classical myths in this reissue of Lucy Coats' accessible collection, illustrated by Anthony Lewis.

Atticus the Storyteller is determined to take part in the great Storytelling Festival near Troy. He leaves his family in Crete and sets off on a year-long journey round Greece with his donkey, Melissa; and wherever he goes he tells his favourite myths to anyone who'll listen.

The 100 myths include all the favourites, such as the wanderings of Odysseus, the labours of Heracles, the stories of King Midas, Daedalus and Icarus, and Theseus and the Minotaur. Atticus's journey takes the reader to all the sites of the myths and gives a captivating glimpse of how life was lived in Ancient Greece.

This is an unparalleled introduction to the Greek myths for younger children, excitingly told, wonderful to read aloud, and illustrated on every opening with lively, engaging, colourful pictures full of authentic detail.

'the telling is swift, clear and vivid. Excellent!' - Philip Pullman, bestselling author of HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy.
