First,in May 2014, will be Two Selkie Stories from Scotland, hauntingly retold by Kate Forsyth, one of Australia’s best writers of fantasy for both adults and children.

The stories of twin gods Artemis and Apollo and the twin legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus,  will capture young readers’ imaginations and introduce them to Classical myth and legend in an enticing and exciting way.
