Book review

Following on from his internationally bestselling books on Rome and Egypt, master illustrator Stephen Biesty brings his magic touch to the cradle of civilization - classical Greece. The year is 436 BCE - Olympic year - and 11-year-old Neleus is about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. Setting off from his home in Miletus with his father and brother, our young hero's final destination is the great games at Olympia, but he has many adventures and sees many sights along the way: fearsome Athenian warships at the sacred island of Delos; the rich silver mines of Laurion; the hurly-burly of the port and streets of Athens; the splendour of the Agora and the Acropolis; and a visit to the sacred oracle at Delphi. Biesty's "Greece" is an illustrated tour-de-force, featuring a stunning array of cross-sections, cutaways and explosions. Each drawing highlights Biesty's trademark attention to detail and is backed up by authoritative text and annotations. Biesty's terrific eye for the quirky details of daily life combines with a witty and engaging text to provide an unforgettable window into the world of ancient Greece. Pitched at the 9-12-year-old, this book is destined to bring the ancient world to life for a wide range of readers. No aspect of Greek life is left out...domestic life, religion and the gods, the role of women, children and education, philosophy and learning, myths and legends, government, politics and law, economy and trade, warfare and slavery, the Olympic Games, music and drama, painting, pottery and sculpture, building and architecture, and ships and seafaring.
