Greek Beasts and Heroes: The Silver Chariot

By

This is the seventh in the series, keeping the same format as before. The reader is told the story of Leda and the swan (the more graphic details of the story are omitted and Leda produces two eggs nine months later); Ares, the god of war and Eris, the spirit of strife; Hermes and the fifty cows; Sisyphus and the boulder; the love triangle of Zeus, Hera and Io and the peacock feathers; Echo and Narcissus and the story of Artemis and Actaeon whom she turns into a stag to be torn to pieces by his own hounds. The last two stories are that of Pan and Syrinx the nymph whom he turns into a lyre and Nyx, the goddess of Night, and her three starry daughters. An appendix explains which other stories your favourite characters appear in, in the other books in the series.
