LAS METAMORFOSIS DE OVIDIO Y OTROS MITOS (PARA ENTENDER LA MITOLOGÍA CLÁSICA)

Following the success of our series “Classic told to children”, that has already reached 1,000,000 readers all over Spain and many international translations and success in other countries, we are now publishing a book to approach classic mythology to young readers.

Phd. Rosa Navarro’s introduction: “In this book you’ll read amazing beautiful stories, sometimes cruel and hard. Greeks and Romans believed in those stories and you’ll love to understand why they did it. Moreover you will realize that those stories are everywhere around: in films, in paintings, in sculptures, in buildings and in many other books as retold stories. But moreover, reading this book will give you the key to open many doors from the huge city of knowledge”.

I have not invented a thing I told you in this book; I haven’t changed any single detail. I just follow the guide of an extraordinary Latin poet, Ovid, who wrote those myths during the first century in a book called The Metamorphoses. Welcome to the house of immortal Gods!
