Children's LiteraturePart of the "Ancient Myths" series, the illustrations in this title will captivate the reader's interest and make him/her want to find out more about Jason and his adventures. A young reader can easily get absorbed in this witty picture book explaining the ancient Greek myth. The table of contents provides an outline of how the ancient myth of Jason unfolds. Everything from him being raised by the cartoon-like centaurs to him taking the Golden Fleece is fluidly-written and many of the illustrations provide humorous dialogue bubbles for the reader. An introduction, glossary, and an index are included. Readers will not struggle with the pronunciation of names of heroes, villains, and monsters woven through the book because of the "who's who" pronunciation key provided in the back. 2005 (orig. 2004), Picture Window Books, Ages 8 up.
