Two thousand years ago the Roman poet Virgil related the adventures of a hero called Aeneas. He was a man who escaped from the burning ruins of Troy and, 'driven by Fate', led his people to a new home in a distant land. The story of Aeneas and the founding of Rome has excitement and adventure, magic and romance, humour and sadness. Emily Frenkel's retelling is fresh and direct. Simon Weller's illustrations are fabulous. Enter the ancient world of Aeneas. You will never want to leave.
Emily Frenkel is Head of Classics at Pymble Ladies' College, Sydney, Australia. A past president of the Australian Classical Languages Teachers Association, she has taught for over forty years and has written books for children.
