Atticus the Storyteller is determined to take part in the great Storytelling Festival near Troy. He leaves his family in Crete and sets off on a year-long journey  round Greece with his donkey, Melissa; and wherever he goes he tells his favourite myths to anyone who'll listen.

These 100 myths include all the favourites, such as: the wanderings of Odysseus, the labours of Heracles, the stories of King Midas, Daedalus and Icarus, and Theseus and the Minotaur.

    "Delightful introduction to Greek Mythology!"

    I bought this for my then three year old daughter to listen to on car journeys. In actuality, we both listened and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an engaging and highly accessible introduction to the Greek Myths narrated in interlinked tales by Atticus the Greek. Good narration, lively tales and an excellent premise combine to make an audiobook all the family will enjoy.

    Story
    "Enjoyed this so much that I bought the "real" book"

    There is a great deal of criticism about this book - the myths aren't in the "right" order, they're too "sanitised" and so on, but for children and adults who don't have a thorough grounding in classical Greek mythology, this is a lovely introduction to the myths.

    The myths are "linked together" by the story of a storyteller and his donkey, on their way to a marvellous storytelling festival, and along the way, the storyteller tells stories to his donkey and people they meet along the way, each of which is a short myth.

    To be honest, the story of the storyteller isn't of much interest to me, but it does bring the individual myths together.

    I think these would be delightful as bedtime treats, and now that I have the printed book too, I think it's a lovely book to have in a children's library. If you enjoy these, then you can always upgrade to the "bloodier" versions later on!
