“Overall, these retellings of legendary tales may stir the imaginations of middle school readers. Igor Jocevski’s illustrations give past heroes an air of modern, extremely muscular superheroes – an effect likely to appeal to contemporary boys.”

Synopsis

Told in a simple narrative linking certain historical events with the great Macedonian figures Philip and Alexander, the eight stories in this book follow one another like scenes in a film.

They convey the universal values that cause an individual to become engraved in the history of humanity and the father-son relationship as a basic civilizational thread in passing on the tradition of a way of life and the values and philosophy of an ethnos. The prevailing message of all these stories is that wisdom and love are the most powerful weapons.

The greatness of the love shown for one’s homeland is the highest attainment of the human spirit, forever imprinted and indelible in the collective memory of a people.

In this one thing, love for one’s homeland, Philip and Alexander have remained unsurpassed to this day.
