Countless would-be-heroes have tried to slay Medusa, the famous monster with snakes for hair, but each and every one has turned to stone, simply by meeting her gaze. The young Perseus is different, though. The Goddess Athena has given him a sword and shield and told him to beware of Medusa's tricks. But Perseus finds himself suddenly unprepared when Medusa's weapon of choice is a bedtime story—the story of her life. Will Perseus stay true to his course and slay the monster, or will the humanity of Medusa's tale slay the hero?
