Immerse yourself in the complex and mysterious world of Greek mythology! Part of the 'ology series of interactive, multi-dimensional books, "Mythology" is will drop the reader into the intriguing early nineteenth notes of explorer and "antiquity collector" John Oro. The guidebook of Byron-devotee Lady Hestia Evans, each page is filled with vintage-looking Romantic illustrations and a detailed history of the Greek Gods. The sidebars are filled with letters and diary entries from John Oro, chronicling his descent from the good-hearted collector who planned to turn his finds over to a new Greek museum-into a man who begins to believe in the Greek gods, and becomes greedier and greedier with every find, until the final pages of the book begin to turn suspiciously golden.

Interactive features include a card game featuring the twelve Olympians, an oak-leaf oracle of Zeus, a pop-up Pandora's box, a booklet retelling the tale of Odysseus, a piece of the Golden Fleece, a gold OBOLOS coin to pay the ferryman on the River Styx, and many more flaps, foldouts, and other surprises. 28 pages, bejeweled hardcover.
