Description
The ancient Greek tale of true loyalty is retold here for readers 5 to 8, and pictured in realistic pastel drawings that seem to glow with Mediterranean sunshine. It begins with the tyrant Dionysius, ruler of Syracuse on the island of Sicily, a man who trusts no one; even his bed has a moat and drawbridge. When young Pythias is heard criticizing the tyrant's rule, he is arrested and sentenced to die in one month, but he asks for the time to say goodbye to his parents and provide for their care. His best friend Damon, sure of Pythias's loyalty, agrees to stand in for him, and to take his punishment should Pythias not return.
