Mythological Creatures A Classical Bestiary (Paperback)
|Tales about proud gods and goddesses, fabulous creatures, ferocious beasts, and brave heroes from the world of Greek mythology have captured the imaginations of readers, young and old, for centuries. Now see them brought to life like never before, as acclaimed author and artist Lynn Curlee turns his brush to a subject that is unlike any other to create a work of boundless creativity and beauty. |
From the fierce Chimera, who is part lion, goat, and serpent; to the magnificent Phoenix that rises from its own ashes; to the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece; to the legend of Perseus and the Gorgon Medusa; to the noble winged horse, Pegasus; to Cerberus, the three-headed watchdog of Hades, Mr. Curlee explores the characters of the myths and legends that have been told and retold for thousands of years.
i> brings to life a world where lowly mortals can either be favored or destroyed by powerful gods and goddesse and where kings and queens must bow down before Zeus and his brethren. It is a place where nymphs and centaurs roam to the music of Pan''s flute and the hungry Cyclops and Minotaur lurk in the shadows -- a magical place of love, danger, and imagination.
