See all Product description. I bought this book for my 7 year old son. An illustration towards the end of the book shows that Perseus, though clearly wearing his cloak of invisibility, is nonetheless visible to the person he is confronting. My son wanted to know if this meant the cloak didn't work or whether it wasn't supposed to be in the picture. This confusion overshadowed the narrative so I could not recommend this book.
