Roman Myths brings to life fifteen classic stories from Roman mythology. Included on this two CD collection is the birth of Venus and the founding of Rome by twin brothers Romulus and Remus. Young listeners will also discover how the Sibyl of Cumae predicted the future of the city - for a price, and learn how the sacred geese saved the city from the Gauls and how the Sabine woman prevented a war.

Here too are the great gods and goddesses, brought vividly to life: Jupiter, king of the gods, Juno his wife, warrior Mars, Mercury the messenger, Diana the goddess of hunting, as well as the lesser gods and goddesses who controlled every part of Roman life.

These retellings make the ancient world live again, and transform the old legends into unforgettable stories of suffering and joy, disaster and triumph.

Read by Andrew Sachs, this release will captivate the minds of many young listeners. Well worth £10 of anyone's money.
