Synopsis

Ten wonderful retellings of ancient myths and legends all about giants. These stories are taken from ancient Greek, Celtic, Indian, Inuit and European cultures. Some readers will be familiar with, such as the battle between David and Goliath. Others will be less familiar, such as the Mayan story of the Cabracan where the hero twins destroy the fearsome mountain shaker. Myths and ancient civilisations are a core element of the curriculum at KS2 and inclusions in this series, Ten of the Best Myths, of stories from Mayan, Japanese, Indian, Roman, Persian and American cultures - an many others - will both fascinate and educate young readers.
