Perseus and Medusa
Jr. Graphic Myths: Greek Heroes
Greek myths are filled with prophecies, schemes, and grand adventures. When an oracle told Acrisius, the king of Argos, that his grandson Perseus would one day kill him, Acrisius forced his daughter Dana? and her baby, Perseus, out of his kingdom. Acrisius did not know just how special his grandson was, though. Nor did he think of the fact that no human being can change his destiny or thwart fate. Perseus overcomes seemingly insurmountable obstacles, including slaying snake-haired Medusa, to earn his place among the Greek heroes. Readers will enjoy finding out more about ancient Greek culture and mythology through the rich illustrations and exciting story.
