You love mythology, right? Well, this book contains 96 pages of my illustrations accompanying Lise Lunge Larsen's retellings of Greek and Roman myths -- myths about characters whose names are forever embedded in our language, like Janus, the two-headed god of doorways, from whose name we get the word "janitor".
- Sample page spread
- Amazon's page with extensive "look inside" samples.
"A treat for myth lovers and language lovers alike, this smart and well-executed compilation should provide readers with a deeper understanding of the ways in which language evolves and of the surprising symbolism behind certain words."-- Publishers Weekly, starred review
