Summary
Perseus the constellation is named for the legendary hero of many Greek myths. Not only does Perseus kill the Gorgon Medusa but he rescues the princess Andromeda from being eaten by a horrible monster. And these are just two of Perseus's adventures. Readers will find out how Perseus acquired a helmet that turned him invisible, the sandals that helped him fly, and how he vanquished his enemies. Supporting illustrations and photographs will help readers visualize both the famous figure and his constellation in this comprehensible retelling of the myth
