From lightning-wielding Zeus, the supreme Greek god, to protective Hathor, the Egyptian goddess of love – heroes, gods, and monsters are brought to life in these retellings of myths from around the world. As well as offering the retellings themselves, the book investigates the meanings of these primal stories, examining why these tales have stood the test of time over thousands of years. Themed features draw together elements that are common to myths from all over the world, such as shapeshifters, mythical beasts, and magical weapons. Panels on modern retellings, such as Percy Jackson and The Little Mermaid, help to show why these myths are still relevant to our lives today.
