With a special foreword by award-winning comedian, actor, presenter and director, Stephen Fry, Persephone is the seventh book in the Early Myths collection.
Persephone is the daughter of the goddess of nature who grows up in the forests of Greece only to be whisked away by Hades, the love-struck god of the Underworld. Persephone's mother, Demeter, roams across the lands in search of her daughter and a solution must be found. Should Persephone return to her old life or can there be a balance between her role as goddess of nature above and her new responsibilities below?
Persephone joins the other multi-award winning books in Early Myths collection: Perseus, Jason, Odysseus, Atalanta, Herakles and Theseus, which have won prizes for children's literature and illustration. Early Myths is the perfect way to introduce kids to Greek myths and is aimed at a young audience, from ages 4 to 10.
