Greek Tales: the Lion's Slave, Paperback Book

Greek Tales: the Lion's Slave Paperback

Illustrated by Helen Flook

Part of the Greek Tales series


From the bestselling author of Horrible Histories... The great inventor Archimedes has just one problem.

His clumsy servant, young Lydia, is the bane of his life.

But when the Romans besiege Syracuse, and the Greeks turn to Archimedes for help, it is young Lydia who always seems to come up with the answers.

Of course Archimedes is a lion in the eyes of the folk of Syracuse.

He takes all the credit, but that's life for a Greek girl slave.

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.
