KIRKUS REVIEW

At the temple of Delphi, the wanderings of Perseus begin. It is there he is bid by the priest to secure the frightful head of the Medusa, a task which wins him the hand of Andromeda and the honor of his mother, Danae. It also forms a link in the chain of prophecy which leads him to Argos and casts him as an instrument of his grandfather's death. A story rich in events and attitudes, it is simply but effectively retold by Jay Williams.
