This title contains speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations, which create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. With fewer words than are found in typical mythology collections, and with plenty of great visual pointers, these texts are an ideal introduction to classic myths that reluctant readers would otherwise find too challenging. The stories of Ra, Osiris and Isis are retold, alongside the tale of the epic battle between Seth and Horus. Opening pages contain information on the importance of religious beliefs to the ancient Egyptians. Closing pages contain further information on important deities and mythological figures. This title helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14, and fits into Key Stage 2 English and Key Stage 2 History.
