Description
Bursting into life in the hands of Adrian Mitchell, here are some of the brightest, loveliest, and most powerful myths ever written. Recreated from Ovid's Metamorphoses, these stories, ballads, and headline news articles let the Minotaur, King Midas, Arachne, Bacchus, Persephone, and many more haunting figures walk the Earth once more. Stunning artwork by Alan Lee, the most acclaimed fantasy illustrator of our time, brings to life these stories, creating a children's classic to bewitch a new generation raised in a world of special effects.
