Description

Sulky and obstinate, Typhon is not the son his well-to-do Athenian parents think he should be. Not knowing what else to do, they reach out to their friends Epicurus and Menander, the great Hellenic philosophers of old. The philosophers' diagnosis: adventure. Gifting Typhon with the ability to speak to plants, they send him across ancient Greece to discover what he can about life and love. But while he's soaking in arboreal wisdom, Typhon embarks on the greatest adventure of adolescence: love. "The book has an undeniable charm." -The Saturday Review, 1925 Eden Phillpotts was born in India in 1862, but hailed from the United Kingdom from his early childhood forward. Known as a prolific young adult and mystery novelist, he penned about 250 works in his lifetime, including The Farmer's Wife, a comic play which Alfred Hitchcock later directed as a silent film. Later in his career, he explored his modern philosophy in a wealth of fantasy and early science-fiction novels.
