Rate this book
Winner of the bronze medal at the international Moonbeam Children's Book Awards
Perseus is the first book in the Early Myths collection, a series of children's picture books about Greek myth. Each book tells the tale of a character from mythology and brings the story to life through the inspiration from art and literature. The books are aimed at 4 to 8 year olds, are beautifully illustrated and easy to read.

Perseus is the tale of a young boy who has to flee his home with his mother and grows up in a foreign land. To prove his worth he claims he can take on the magical Gorgon, Medusa. With the help of the gods he flies across the lands and faces his greatest challenge, rescuing princess Andromeda along his journey and coming home to claim his throne.

This book joins the award winning Early Myths collection. Our second book was Jason & the Golden Fleece. The third book, Odysseus, has received two awards- an honourable mention at the 2015 Royal Dragonfly Books Awards and a finalist position in the 2015 Wishing Shelf Children's Book Awards. Our latest release is Atalanta and our fifth book will be launched in late 2016.
