Eleven-year-old author, Ben Spies, writes his version of some of the most thrilling tales from Greek mythology.

From Titans to Olympians, 
'The World of Greek Mythology' delivers an action-packed retelling of the myths, from how the world was created, featuring Chaos, Gaia and Ouranos, to a personal take on some of the greatest and mightiest gods and goddesses from Greek mythology. Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Hera and Demeter are only a few among them.

Ben adds his quirky humour to each chapter as we follow the drama of the legendary Trojan War and its hero Achilles, and the epic voyage of Odysseus braving cyclopes and other monsters.

But be warned: the gruesome world of Greek mythology is not for the faint of heart… get ready for bloody battles and horrible deaths.

If you love Greek mythology, or you’re keen to learn more, this book is sure to delight and captivate your imagination.

If your children enjoyed the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan they will love this book!

"Ben writes in a lively, fast-paced style, with lots of jokes and asides to his readers. He know his audience well, having written the book aged 11. I wish I'd had this book as an intro when I studied Classics at high school, I might have found it a bit easier to follow! This book will appeal to readers from about 8 years up who enjoy action, fantasy and don't mind a bit of blood and gore. It would be a great book to read from about 8, depending on the reader's own capabilities. I highly recommend it."
