AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It is the last day of school before the Christmas Holidays and Caz Klein has incurred the wrath of the nasty Deputy Principal, Miss Snodgrass, and been given detention. Annoyed with Caz for being so stupid, Simon argues with her and a fight ensues. Miss Snodgrass arrives to break it up, but not before Caz inadvertently activates her necklace and drags Simon with her into the fantastical world of Morphea.'

'... Monsters from classical myth have been lurking in the gullies of Western literature for a long time – in retellings and adaptations, and acting as symbols and metaphors for aspects of the human experience.'

'They’ve been surfacing recently in fantasy for children and young adults. Imaginary Medusas, realistically drawn Minotaurs, as well as a multitude of many-headed Scyllas, Hydras and Cerberuses: they all appear in Australian children’s and YA fiction. ...'
