10 Best Ever: 10 Best Greek Legends Ever!

Ten gruesome Greek legends guaranteed to get you groaning – because they’re told the Horrible way! From Horrible Histories star author Terry Deary, these tortuous tales will make you tear your hair with fright. Now, I know your teacher told you that the Greeks were civilized. But I bet they didn’t tell you about the NASTY BITS. This book will! So get set to see:

  • Odysseus munching on monsters
  • Monstrous Medusa’s horrible hair
  • Killer king Oedipus marrying his mum
  • Jason leading the avenging Argonauts
  • The evils of the Underworld revealed…

... plus heaps of furies, harpies and other killer creatures. They may be myths, but they’re really monstrous!
