"Myths are stories that have been told over hundreds of years to help explain why the world works the way it does. They're filled with powerful magic, mysterious monsters, and fantastical beasts, but also brave heroes on exciting adventures that teach us about right and wrong. From the Japanese myth of Momotarō The Peach Boy and his loyal animal friends to the Slavic myth of Vasilisa the Wise and her enchanted doll, this beautifully illustrated collection of mythology for kids takes you on a journey through the sands of time. You'll explore diverse cultures across the globe through the incredible tales of gods and goddesses, earth-shattering giants, mighty dragons, magical lakes, and more"--Provided by publisher
