James Riordan, Jason Cockcroft (Illustrator). I enjoyed this retelling of the Jason myth. The length was nice and the detail beautiful. Lists with This Book. I wish there were more pictures of the exciting parts of the story but I loved every picture included and really enjoyed the Greek pottery-like art.

Award-winning children's author James Riordan boldly retells this story from Greek mythology, introducing readers to the first great European hero to undertake a grand journey. Accompanied by some of ancient Greece's bravest heroes, Jason leads an expedition to retrieve the Golden Fleece, the property of a king in a far-off land. Traveling by sea, they encounter trial after trial along their route - shrieking Harpies, deadly clashing rocks, and fierce Amazon warrior women - and yet more challenges await them at their destination. For before he will give up the fleece, the king devises a test for Jason that will certainly be the death of him - unless the king's daughter, Medea, agrees out of love for Jason to lend him her magical powers. This is a classic tale of high adventure that holds appeal for boys and girls alike.
