The Silver Chariot by Lucy Coats

Atticus the Storyteller is on a quest. As he travels, Atticus tells tales of fabulous beasts, gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines. Now it's your turn to meet: Hermes - the messenger of the gods Narcissus - who loved only himself Pan - the god whose music was memory The Fates - who weave the tapestry of life Brought to life with Anthony Lewis's vivid illustrations, read the next instalment of Atticus's thrilling journey.

I was a great fan of history when i was at school, however I could never get interested in the Greeks. I think it was all the long and complicated names. Anyway, I really tried to clear my head of all these negative thoughts before I sat and read this book.

Unfortunately, i still was not enticed into this book. The book starts with a boy called Atticus who is a storyteller and he goes around the area telling stories to the people he finds. I found the names difficult which I think will put some younger, newer readers off the book, however I also think that some children will enjoy the book because it does have some good stories within the book and many children do enjoy the Greeks. I would recommend it as a book to give to someone who is interested in the Greeks and history.

This book is part of a series of books called Greek Beasts and Hereos of which this is book 5.

Thank you to Nina Douglas of Orion Books for sending me this book to review.
