Perseus

Perseus
Benjamin Tucker Marcus as Perseus (with the head of Medusa) for Halloween 2009

We so enjoyed Geraldine McCaughrean’s retelling of Gilgamesh that I bought her 4-part “Heroes” series. I started with Perseus, which was great. I loved some of the chapters so much I read them aloud to wife and son, despite the fact that doing so ends up telling the story out of order. Meanwhile, Benjamin has begun listening to the audiobook version of McCaughrean’s Odysseus. (The other 2 heroes of the “Heroes” series are Hercules and Theseus.)
