From the bestselling author of Horrible Histories... Young Acheron is a liar. Everybody knows it. Troy is under siege and Acheron tells tales of Trojan bravery to entertain Prince Paris and the beautiful Helen at the palace. But when a stranger comes to the city to announce that the Greeks have departed, leaving a special gift of a wooden horse, Acheron is suspicious. He races to tell Prince Paris about the Greek plot, but will anyone at the palace believe him? Terry Deary's Greek Tales explore the world of Ancient Greece through the eyes of children who could have lived at the time. These stories feature real people and take place in some of the most recognisable Greek settings. This new edition features notes for the reader to help extend learning and exploration of the historical period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hilarious... with energy and invention. Deary has a remarkable ability to conjure up vivid characters and scene-settings within a brief narrative. * Books for Keeps (September 2007) *
'Despite the moral it's a good introduction to an historical event and very funny with lots of action. Children will love the characters... There is lots of dialogue and some lovely evocative imagery too. Highly reccommended.' * Carousel (June 2007) *
