Three of Greatest Greek Plays in one Collection “Time, which sees all things, has found you out.” ― Sophocles, Oedipus Rex
Sophocles' three Thebian plays, Oedipus, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone, are cornerstones of western civilization and dramatic history. Each play stems from the fated tragedy that Oedipus would kill his father and marry his mother.
Androcles lives a miserable life as the slave of a cruel and unjust master. Even though runaway slaves face the death penalty, he flees to the nearby woods. There Androcles delights in his new-found freedom. He also makes an unusual friend: a lion with an injured paw. The two live together happily, but the lion gets captured, and shortly afterwards Androcles, too. Androcles is punished by being fed to a lion.
Androcles prepares to die, glad that he has enjoyed a few weeks of freedom. To his surprise, the ferocious lion doesn’t attack. It’s the lion he helped! The emperor, amazed at what he observed, frees both Androcles and the lion. Androcles then spreads the message that everyone should appreciate their freedom and that slavery should be abolished. This retelling of Aesop’s classic fable demonstrates the importance of freedom and friendship.

Famous inventors and the inventions they develop is a fascinating area of historical study that is usually far too advanced for young children. However, a Famous Inventors & Inventions Picture Book breaks that information down in a way that is interesting and engaging to young boys and girls. Instead of pages and pages of text that makes no sense to them, children can see a picture of the inventor alongside the invention they created.
