…a book filled with pictures. A book about the mythical gods and monsters of Ancient Greece. Even from the safety of the awning the urchin is using for shelter, rain spatters the pages and dampens his clothes. But he can’t put the book down.
It’s the pictures that are so enchanting. One in particular has held his eyes for what could be minutes or hours, a watercolor of a shadow-man and a mighty sorceress. The boy stares intensely at the two figures when something starts to happen. A tingling builds in the air, the beginnings of a storm like the one thundering above the city.
Before the boy knows what’s happening, the book explodes, and the adventure begins!
