One Shirt Perseus?
Full Cast Audio brings to life Geraldine McCaughrean's retelling of the myths of PERSEUS (Full Cast Audio 2011). Perseus, son of Zeus and a mortal woman, undertakes the beheading of Medusa, one of the Gorgons. Later, he slays a sea monster to rescue a beautiful young woman before returning home to glory. McCaughrean language begs to be read aloud, or in this case, listened to. Full Cast Audio's production underscores the humor as well as the adventure of the story with narrator Cynthia Bishop and a full cast giving voice to the other players in this retelling of the myth. Offer this audiobook along with others that feature McCaughrean's retellings such as Odysseus and Cyrano, both from Full Cast Audio. <661>
