This beautiful children's history book retells Herodotus's stories and brings ancient history to life.
Herodotus was a keen traveller who went all over the ancient world and was interested in everything he saw and heard. When he came back from his travels he went to Athens in Greece and gave lectures about the places he had visited. Finally he decided to write about them, creating what became the first history book in the world.
