Editor reviews

These invigorating versions of the Greek myths feature the action-packed adventures of Bellerophon and Pegasus, the cautionary tale of Orpheus and Eurydice, the sad story of Echo and Narcissus, and other beloved legends. Performer Benjamin Soames has a knack for storytelling, and his light, pleasant, English-accented voice makes him an engrossing narrator. Presented with classical music interludes that add punch, this is a recording that's perfect for kids, or for anyone who enjoys the Greek myths presented in top-notch style.

Summary

Bellerophon and the winged horse Pegasus launch into the blue sky in search of the dreaded three-headed Chimera, but will success go to the hero's head? Orpheus, devastated by the death of his wife, Eurydice, dares the dangers of the kingdom of the dead in an attempt to bring her back to life. Echo loves Narcissus but he only loves himself: a story that can only end in sadness. These and other colourful legends from Ancient Greece are retold in lively form by Benjamin Soames, with classical music providing further excitement.

Great!

Benjamin has personified the book! I was spellbound from the beginning to the end. Audiobook is more accurate than the kindle book.
