The divine Encyclopedia Mythologica series grows mightier still, as gods and heroes meet the kings of pop-up. Continuing the thrilling new mythological pop-up trilogy, the masterminds behind the phemenal Encyclopedia Prehistorica turn their attention to the dazzling and the divine, bringing to life the Gods and Heroes of myth and legend. This stunning book takes the intrepid reader on a grand pop-up tour of centuries-old myths and legends from across the globe. Explore the lush banks of the Nile of Ancient Egypt, and visit Zeus's kingdom on Mount Olympus, high above the clouds of Ancient Greece. Touch down in the frozen lands of the Norse gods; venture to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor rules from the heavens; and on into the wilds of Oceania, where jealous Pele's volcanic rage simmers just below the earth's crust.
