Perseus is the son of Zeus, king of the gods, and a mortal woman. Perseus' mother is pursued by a king who wants her hand in marriage. To get rid of Perseus, the king sends him on a seemingly impossible mission--to retrieve the head of the gorgon Medusa, whose very look can turn men to stone. Aided by the gods, Perseus takes on this mission, and along the way rescues a beautiful princess, Andromeda. When Perseus returns with the head, his surprised future father-in-law gets more than he bargained for. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0822575280
Inhaltsangabe: Could a monster whose very look turns men to stone be a challenge too perilous even for the son of Zeus? King Polydectes has designs on Perseus' mother, Danaë. But first the king must get rid of young Perseus once and for all. So Polydectes hatches a plan to trick the young hero into performing an impossible task--slay the snake-haired Gorgon monster Medusa, whose very look turns men to stone. Yet, as the son of Zeus, king of the gods, Perseus has many powerful allies. Will Perseus' strength and courage--and the favor of the gods--allow him to do the impossible?
