              From lightning-wielding Zeus to Thor, god of thunder - heroes, gods, and monsters are brought to life in these retellings of myths from around the world. 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.

              "McCahon (1919-1987) is widely recognised as an outstanding figure in twentieth century art whose ground-breaking work over four decades changed the way we see this country, while engaging intensely with questions of faith, mortality, belonging and the power of art. In this landm...ark new book, published in association with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki on the 100th anniversary of McCahons birth, celebrated writer and curator Justin Paton takes readers on a journey through the landscape of Aotearoa New Zealand, as the artist loved and painted it. From Otago to Canterbury, Takaka to Taranaki, Muriwai to Northland and many more places in between, Paton brings his curators eye to a selection of nearly 200 of McCahons paintings and drawings, including iconic and beloved works and others never before published, presented in fifteen themed sections offering fresh perspectives on McCahons abiding concerns. In elegant, responsive and deeply compelling prose, the author traces McCahons travels through New Zealand, charts his remarkable development as a painter and thinker, explores his deepening engagement with Maori culture and environmental issues, and reveals his vision of the land as a source of light, peace and spiritual sustenance"--Publisher information.
