This was real good. The only problem is that it is exactly like Perseus and Medusa. The king sends the guy to get the Golden Fleece, and when he returns, he finds out that the king send him just to get rid of him. And the very first chapter was exactly like Snow-white. The stepmother sends the King to kill his own kids (she claims that Zeus wanted it) and then he doesn't get the chance since they escape.
The story of Jason and the search for the Golden Fleece in all it's exciting, romantic, and gory detail. Brooks remains faithful to the original tale, yet writes in a way that is understandable to younger readers. A great introduction to the tale and to Greek myths in general.
