Myths and Legends 1 and 2 explore the world of myth and legend, and show that stories from Australia, Asia, Europe, Africa and America often have similar themes, plots and relationships running through them. Are these brave women, dastardly villains, bold heroes and cheeky serving girls recognisable all over the world? Are these stories of dark forests, difficult journeys, terrible creatures and exciting battles the collective dreaming of mankind? One half of each volume is made up of fresh, comic and dramatic retellings of these traditional tales. Turn the book over and upside down to find modern and imaginative adaptations of the same stories. In the process of reading and comparing these tales, students are encouraged to travel far and wide across the fantastic landscape of myth and legend, as well as exploring the people, ideas and situations that go to make up a great story.
