In this fun, light-hearted adventure, Alexander explores how stories come about and how they are told. He populates Arkadia (Alexander's imaginary Greece?) with characters whom the readers can easily imagine as the forbears of mythical creatures like centaurs or satyrs. He also interlaces the main tale with entertaining smaller stories, each Alexander's own rendition of a famous myth. A very fun read.
