He is also the author of The Age of Chivalry and Legends of Charlemagne, both retellings of medieval tales. Bulfinch's versions of these classic Greek and Roman myths have introduced generations of readers to the exciting world of gods, goddesses, and heroes. Giles Greenfield was shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award for his Owen and The Mountain.
