Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018

Written and illustrated by the phenomenally talented Greenberg sisters, this fantastic retelling of the life of Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom and war, is simply awesome. Both fair and fearless, anyone who crosses her path will suffer a terrible fate. Watch as she turns her enemy into a spider, competes against her furious uncle, and keeps Odysseus safe on his journey home. There is much to admire and inspire in this captivating book.

Description

Discover the adventures of Athena, the ancient Greek goddess of wisdom, war and courage. From her extraordinary birth – sprung from the head of her father, in the midst of a thunderous headache – to her refusal to take no for an answer. Find out how she inspired powerful gods, goddesses and humans and the terrifying fate of those who dared to cross her path.

Follow Athena as she competes against her bad-tempered uncle; watch as she turns her enemy into a spider and join her as she keeps Odysseus safe on his remarkable journey home.

Prepare to be amazed as you uncover the story of one of the most fearless ancient goddesses, and the tales of a world where humans, gods and goddesses could meet. Illustrated and written by the brilliantly talented sister duo, Isabel and Imogen Greenberg, this is a story of daring for goddesses-in-the-making.
