“Jason and the Golden Fleece”
Jason and the Golden Fleece is a really good book. It is all about a man called Jason who tries to get his magical golden fleece back after his uncle Pelias took it away when he was younger. The book tells the story of how Jason built a boat and went to Iolkos with his crew to find the fleece. Jason has to complete some very hard challenges to get the fleece back. The book has lots of really good colourful drawings.
