Ariel Setobarko about this book: This is the second book in the Miranda Series of Sycorax Books, intended for very young readers. The story line is a sequel to The Judgment of Paris and describes the events that led up to the Trojan War. The readers are introduced to Paris on his visit to Sparta, the beautiful Helen, her husband, Menelaus, and his brother, Agamemnon. The story is told matter-of-factly, without pathos or undue emphasis, and without any attempt at simplifying the language. The illustrations are intelligent and evocative.
The book has been produced with special attention to the needs of very young readers, and it follows the method pioneered by Glenn Doman in his well known book How to Teach Your Baby to Read. In both print and Kindle formats the readers are presented with a two-page spread, with the text on the left and the corresponding illustration on the right. Every spread contains only one or two sentences, printed in large, one-inch letters. There is a natural mixture of short and long sentences, easy and difficult words. Homeschoolers love the book.
