       Additional Information  
     
      From the prize-winning author and illustrator of Greek Myths and Greek Gods and Goddesses comes this wonderfully rich and varied collection of fifteen stories from Roman mythology, freshly retold and made accessible for today's readers.

    Here are all the famous myths: the birth of Venus, the founding of Rome, how the sacred geese saved the city from the Gauls -- stories that reflect the drama and the power that was Rome. Here are all the great gods and goddesses, brought vividly to life: Jupiter, the king of the gods; Juno, his wife; warrior Mars; Mercury the messenger; Diana, the goddess of hunting; as well as many of the lesser gods and goddesses who controlled every aspect of Roman life.

    Emma Chichester Clark's beautiful illustrations, inspired by Roman art and culture, perfectly reflect the liveliness of Geraldine McCaughrean's retellings.
