FIRST GREEK MYTHS
The Ultimate First Book Guide
These six retellings of Greek Myths are short and well-balanced and the language is fresh and immediate. The full colour illustrations throughout the book are dramatic and engaging. Arachne the Spider Woman is all about the consequences of reckless pride. It tells the story of what happens when Arachne, a mere mortal, challenges a goddess, Athena, to a weaving competition and how she gets turned into a spider as a punishment. 'Poor Arachne, how she wished she had not been such a show-off, and so rude to the goddess Athena.' Great stuff!
