In every chapter, these gripping classic adventures address the timeless questions: Where do we come from and how are we made? How can so much violence and hate exist in the world alongside so much love and beauty? What happens after death?

HERMES, GOD OF THIEVES is a fun and informative introduction to Greek Mythology for children of all ages. In small entertaining episodes it introduces young readers to the full colourful cast of ancient Greek gods and their foibles.
