About this title

Synopsis:

In ancient times, the Greeks believed that the gods came to Earth disguised as animals and people. The ancient Greeks made up stories about these gods and the humans that surrounded them. We call these stories myths. Myths often tell us about the adventures of heroes. The story of Jason and the Golden Fleece is one of these stories. It tells of a young man, Jason, and his comrades who embark on a great quest. Jason sets out to undo a wrong done to him and his family. His uncle had stolen his father’s throne, and Jason’s goal is to take it back. In order to do so, he must go on a long journey and perform many difficult feats. Along the way, he travels to new lands, conquers monsters, obtains help from the gods, and overcomes great hardships. The graphic retelling of this Greek myth will capture readers’ imaginations.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–5—Greek myths take the spotlight in these titles that do a great job with the subject material, presenting each story in a comic book format. The twists and turns of the Trojan War are easy to navigate here, and the depiction of Heracles as a strong but not very bright champion suits the stories well. The art isn't as engaging as the writing; it's servicable, and the images certainly help move the stories along, but the clothing does not always seem period, and the facial expressions often seem overdone. Despite these flaws, however, the tales are well told, and the sometimes racy subject material is toned down to the appropriate level for a lower to upper elementary audience. Back matter in each title includes a helpful glossary as well as a map that depicts the supposed route scholars have plotted out for each hero. There isn't much here to tie into the Common Core, but this action-packed, quick-paced format will engage young readers and will likely lead them to search for further sources.
