Perseus: Destiny’s Call

In the time of myth and legends…Perseus always believed he was destined to live the life of a simple fisherman. He never believed he was special. When in an audience with the king of his island home in Sephiros, young Perseus inadvertently made a boastful claim. King Polydectes long wanted this young fisherman out of the way to pursue his beautiful mother and the king has used the claim to his advantage. The sinister king has now charged Perseus with an impossible task. As a wedding present, Perseus must present the head of a monster so hideous one look into her eyes will turn a man to stone.

But on this road to accomplish the impossible, Perseus will learn of his true origins. He will discover the tragic circumstances revolving around his birth, including his mother in chains, a murderous grandfather, and the identity of his unknown father who is known to reside in Olympus – the home of the gods.

To accomplish the impossible, Perseus gains gifts from the gods. But tools can only take a man so far. He must gird himself with courage, audacity and believe in himself to achieve the unachievable. With the life of his mother and family on the line, Perseus the Avenger must answer the call of destiny…

This is a story of heroism, honor, family, and embracing one’s true calling, during the golden age of mythology.

Harry Houdini: The Legend of the World’s Greatest Escape Artist

This is the life story of Ehrich Weiss. If you don’t recognise this man’s name, that is because the world came to know him as the one and only Harry Houdini.
George Bernard Shaw once remarked that Harry Houdini is the third most famous name in history after Jesus Christ and Sherlock Holmes. While that might be a bold and debatable statement, there is no doubt that Houdini is the most famous magician to have ever lived. Almost  a hundred years after his death, his name is still synonymous with death-defying stunts and unimaginable escapes.
His ability to get out of seemingly impossible situations, along with his knack of dealing with the public and the press, made him a legend in his own time. Some of his most notable escapes, which still cannot be explained, were the Mirror Handcuff Challenge, the Milk Can Escape, the Chinese Water Torture Cell and the Suspended Straitjacket Escape.
How did a poor, uneducated boy rise out of poverty and become the greatest illusionist of the 20th century? The story of Houdini’s life is not only entertaining, but also educational. His struggles in life and his determination to succeed are a lesson to all.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Tom Sawyer is a mischievous young boy with an undying hunger for adventure, and a knack for getting into trouble. He lives with his Aunt Polly in the Mississippi River town of St Petersburg, Missouri. He plays hooky from school; hangs around with Huck Finn, the unsophisticated son of the village drunkard; and deceives his friends into trading their treasures with him.
Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new arrival in town, who returns his affection initially, and even agrees to an ‘engagement’. However, after a slip of the tongue from Tom, she walks off in a huff.
From innocent and imaginary adventures, Tom’s life suddenly takes a new turn. One night, while Tom and Huck Finn are in a graveyard, they witness an incident they should not have. Terrified, they flee from the spot, and swear a blood oath that they will never reveal their secret to anyone.
Tom and Huck then find themselves entangled in a series of real and exciting adventures, with dangerous men constantly at their heels.
Can the boys stand up to the occasion, and become real-life heroes? Will they ever be able to reclaim their normal, carefree lives again?

Muhammad Ali: The Greatest King of the Ring

Muhammad Ali. His ferocious skill inside the ring made him a champion, his gentle spirit outside made him a hero, and his courage in life made him a legend.

Like David taking on Goliath, he fought against the biggest and the strongest and managed to come out on top. Like a modern-day Robin Hood, he gave his wealth to the poor. He had the good looks of a movie star and the words of a poet, and left his fans and critics absolutely spellbound every time.

He soon became the champion of the world, but gave it all up by standing for what he believed in. Refusing to abandon his Muslim faith, and refusing to fight in the Vietnam War, cost him the best years of his career, and nearly stripped him of his freedom. But Muhammad Ali survived it all, and fought his way back to the top all over again.
