Myths And Legends Book Collection (10 Books) £9.99 @ The Book People
Ten great books for £9.99 - you really can't go wrong with that especially, as far as I'm concerned anyway, they're educational books that are FUN.
I love learning, but it's so much easier when learning's fun and entertaining - which is most definitely the case with this Myths and Legends book collection.
The official Book People blurb says,
Marcia Williams is a hugely talented author and illustrator with an incredible eye for detail and a gift for making quite challenging stories completely accessible to a young audience. Children who come in to contact with these books - The Iliad, The Odyssey and the Canterbury Tales to name just three - will enrich their understanding of literature and myth and grow up knowing and loving these powerful stories. With lovely, cartoon-style illustrations and plenty of humour throughout, these exceptional books are an absolute joy.
And the reviews from people who believed that blurb, have nothing to say that doesn't back it up...
"Beautifully illustrated in comic-book style. My children love these. Fantastic collection all housed in a sturdy slipcase."
"These books are as good a start as any to reading classic literature for people of all ages. As I don't have the time to read lots of literature these are useful paperbacks and I also like the humerous slant given to the stories. I've also read from last year's description of these books that they are faithful to the source material. So, what are you waiting for?"
Well there you are then - great books, for a great price, with great reviews. As the last review comment says, what are you waiting for?
Happy myths and legends reading!
