Overview

The Golden Fleece and the Heroes Who Lived Before Achilles
By Padraic Colum

Not swiftly he came, but the slave could see that in those great limbs of his there was speed like to the wind's. The slave fell upon his knees. And with eyes that were full of majesty and wisdom and limbs that were full of strength and speed, the king-centaur stood above him. "O my lord," the slave said, "I have come before thee sent by Æson, my master, who told me where to come and what blasts to blow upon the horn. And Æson, once King of Iolcus, bade me say to thee that if thou dost remember his ancient friendship with thee thou wilt, perchance, take this child and guard and foster him, and, as he grows, instruct him with thy wisdom."

Was kind of a slow read in places! But was a fantastic background of characters and Greek mythology for the Percy Jackson series and the heroes series of Riordan's. It explains who the referenced gods were and the heroes as well. Worth reading!

I have basically read almost all of rick riordans books, and i can already tell, without reading this, its an awesome book. Also, read the percy jackson books, the heroes of olympus series, and the demigod files.

My child is ten and reading this book and she says it is very good. She is reading it in school and might be reading a different version. There is great vocabulary and really is enriching her reading skills, her version is written in old english and really she loves it! It is a bit challenging for her, even though she is an advanced reader! Great for people of all ages!

The neeland llc version is exactly what i was looking for! Most of the others looked poor on my nook or lacked the classic illustrations or formatted the illustrations poorly on the nook. I look forward to reading it to my children. I am glad I previewed them before I bought any.
