    Hardcover ´ Perseus PDF ¸ perseus free, Perseus PDFThe 8YO and I read this in chapters at bedtime He liked Perseus WAY better than Theseus Both as a book and as a person At times the writing is a bit overwrought and hard for a young child to follow but nothing a little editing on the fly while reading aloud can't fix and to be fair the book is probably intended for a slightly older reader anyway Would recommend

    Hardcover ´ Perseus PDF ¸ perseus free, Perseus PDFGreat reading of this familiar myth Two of my children know this story well but the were even mesmerized by this audiobook telling And the author Ms McCaughrean does a fantastic job sanitizing this book just enough to make it acceptable for younger readers but not so much as to rob it of its salient plot points As far as age and interest level Kindergarten to Adult I enjoyed it as much as my 5 8 and 10 year old children Great listen

    Hardcover ´ Perseus PDF ¸ perseus free, Perseus PDFFirst I should point out that this is not a novelization of the classic myth of Perseus but rather a retelling We do not really get into the thoughts of anyone but instead follow the story of Perseus as he slays Medusa takes down Atlas fights various kings saves a princess and kills a sea monster not necessarily in that order This book really helped to flesh out my knowledge of Perseus – all I knew came from a video game that I had played where he was one of the heroes you requested to slay Medusa As this is a retelling of a myth I’m not going to critique the character or plot development At 160 pages the paperback version I think that this is a pretty sufficient retelling – you don’t feel like you are losing out on anythingThere is one thing that irritated me throughout the story – all of the pantheon of gods were referred to by their Greek names like Zeus Hera and Artemis

    Hardcover ´ Perseus PDF ¸ perseus free, Perseus PDFPerseus has always been my favourite Greek hero This is a fairly simple retelling of the Perseus myth but it is well told and has some very vivid descriptions I will admit thought that I was annoyed when Hades was consistently referred to as Pluto despite the fact that everyone else was known by their Greek names except HerculesHeracles in passing But that's a quibble and the book is still worth reading for kids or teens with an interest in mythology
