Myths and Legends is a children's book that invites you to explore all the well-known stories from Greek mythology, Norse myth...ology, and a range of other cultures across more than 100 tales. Discover the fascinating myths of Anansi, the West African trickster god who takes the form of a spider; Changing Woman, the Navajo nature goddess who changes her dress with the seasons; or Tane, the Maori forest god who first brought death to the world. Read about ferocious, man-eating monsters such as the Minotaur, Baba Yaga, and Fafnir the dragon, and the legendary heroes that fought them, like Perseus, Rama, and Gilgamesh. Also included are Robin Hood, the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the Mahabharata, Aztec mythology, and myths and legends from across Asia. As well as offering the retellings themselves, Myths and Legends: a children's encyclopedia investigates the meanings of these primal stories, examining why these tales have stood the test of time over thousands of years. Themed features draw together elements that are common to myths from all over the world, such as shape-changers, mythical beasts, and magical weapons. Panels on modern retellings, such as China's The Monkey King and Marvel's Thor, help to show why these myths are still relevant to our lives today.
