The Ancient Greek myths about the gods of Olympus will live again, to be also enjoyable for young readers, thanks to the unique sensibility and art of Manuela Adreani, an internationally famous illustrator who succeeds in infusing her illustrations with a delicate, exciting atmosphere.
The deeds and the endlessly intertwining stories of the divinities venerated by the Ancient Greeks will arouse children’s curiosity, while making them eager to discover more and more about the gods and to take part in their actions. The evocative drawings, combined with the richness of clothing and drapery that Manuela Adreani is able to suggest, will let their dreams take flight. Thus, the children will discover how these characters from long ago are really more human than they imagined and, through reassuring and delicate illustrations, they will learn to love them by being fascinated by their stories.
