Description
Meet Medusa, the Minotaur, and eleven more mythological monsters
of ancient Greece - artfully portrayed in striking collages, followed by a
glossary of fun facts.


What three-headed dog guards the gates to the underworld? Whose 100
eyes ended up on the tail of the peacock? Who turns into stone all who look upon her? With a minimum of text and a maximum of collage and arresting graphic design, Sara Fanelli lures the fantastical monsters of ancient Greece out of their lairs and lets them show off their power to fascinate. The spare, hand-lettered text will suit even reluctant readers, while a detailed glossary awaits those who are eager to know more monstrous facts.

Here you will find (if you dare!):

100-eyed Argus

one-eyed Cyclops

nine-headed Hydra

Cerberus, the three-headed watchdog

Medusa the Gorgon

Minotaur, half man, half bull

Siren, half woman, half vulture

Sphinx, half woman, half winged lion

Centaur, half man, half horse

Harpies, greedy women with birds’ heads

sea monster Scylla

fire-breathing Chimaera

Echidna and her monstrous children
