Graphic Universe: Myths and Legends


This CD Rom contains 12 ebooks in graphic format together with teachers’ notes for each book; photocopiable masters; a game and quiz; an image bank for creating your own graphic novels; and other useful elements and activities. Great for use with interactive white boards or for individual work. The 12 ebooks are also available in hard-copy format. These ancient myths and legends of heroes and heroines eg Atalanta, Theseus, King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, the Knights of the Round Table, Beowulf and many more are vividly brought to life in these colourful comic-book style retellings. Although the language is quite complex in places, the very detailed full-colour illustrations make it easy to follow the story. An interesting element is a module on how the books were created showing editors’ notes, corrections, suggestions and how the authors and illustrators set about recreating these famous tales. A good resource for encouraging children’s own creativity.
