Fire Thief

Cover image
By Deary, Terry 

Retelling of the tale of Prometheus, in which Prometheus becomes a time traveller in order to escape the wrath of the gods and befriends a Victorian orphan. Prometheus gave fire to humans and was punished for it--only in this story, Zeus frees him and gives him a quest: find a human hero and Theus will be forgiven. The story of Theus alternates with the story of Jim, an orphan and a thief in 1858 who is narrating the whole book, in very funny style. In each volume of the trilogy, Theus befriends different characters as he travels through time.
