Perfect for enquiring minds just starting out with the history of mythology, this lively look at 30 marvellous myths from around the world is a great introduction to the subject. 30 key stories are retold, each explained in neat 30-second soundbites and supported by 3-second flash summaries and cool, colourful artwork.

Six themed sections cover Creation Myths, Quests & Adventures, Creatures & Monsters, Heroes & Tricksters, Earth, Water & Sky, and Gods & Goddesses.
