Little Red Writing (2013)
language
English
3.99 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Little Red Writing is a wonderful book for young readers. Within the story is another story written in a style often found in comic books. Although this creates a busy setting, the book creates a stimulating environment with a lot of detail. However, if the reader is not a fan of...

English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: For Ten-Year-Old Zeus, life on the Greek island of Crete is megaboring except for stormy days when sizzling lightning bolts hunt him. It has a voice whispers to him said "You are the one." He doesn't know what does it mean. He need to escape those pesky electric shocks. One day, ...
Persephone the Phony (2010)
language
English
series
4.18 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: {My Thoughts} – Persephone is one of Athena’s closest friends. However, she isn’t as un-masked around Athena and the other girls as she is around a Godboy named Hades. Persephone seems to like that she can be her own dreary, emo like self when she is around Hades, and she doesn’t...
Cinderella Stays Late (2014)
language
English
4.19 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: True rating: 3.5 stars.A little too many puns, not all of which work (like "masketball"). But it's fun to meet the old familiar fairy tale characters and see how the authors' imaginations reshape them and their environment. Cinda, the only character with any real development, whi...
Zero the Hero (2012)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: {My Thoughts} – Zero the Hero is a Hero in every sense of the word. He is the number Zero and he is needed to solve math equations that wouldn’t be able to be solved without him. Zero the Hero goes through the book feeling like he is a nothing a no number because in a sense he is...

language
English
series

review 1: {My thoughts} – I was one of those children growing up that enjoyed watching shows like Xena and Hercules. They were even more fun to watch when they did crossovers. It doesn’t surprise me that I have really enjoyed reading this book. It is based on Greek Mythology and it is incr...
Aphrodite the Beauty (2010)
language
English
series
4.23 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: A cute story, but I did not enjoy this book as much as it's predecessor (Persephone the Phony). As a lover of mythology, I know that Aphrodite is the goddess of beauty and love, and is almost always portrayed as shallow and vain - so to see this character have some of these trait...

review 1: Okay so I was stuck sick in my parents bed and had none of my books near me. Being sick, I really was not up to getting up and getting one. Hence, I borrowed my father's kindle as it was on te table next to me. Most of the books were adventure stories, but mainly directed at adul...

language
English
series
4.32 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Endlich sind Hades und Persephone wieder an der Reihe, ich hab sie so vermisst. Sie und Hades sind meine Lieblings Charaktere in der gesamten Reihe. Diesmal wird ihre "Romanze" auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Persephone nimmt eine Mutprobe an, die ungeahnte Konsequenzen hat und mu...
Heroes in Training - Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom (2000)
language
English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: the book was horrible. I have read real greek mythology and the only thing near perfect was that zeus was hidden by his mother rhea. yet the book messes that up by adding a bee. I have read the other books and that is also incorrect. Apollo and Ares are the children of Zeus, not ...

review 1: Read this based on the recommendation of Tess, one of my new fourth graders. The first in the Goddess Girls series. Really adorable premise about a school for young gods and goddesses on Mount Olympus. A lot of mythologically accurate Greek mythology mixed in with regular kid ...

language
English
series
3.66 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: When Athena gets a letter from Zeus stating that she'll be going to school at Mount Olympus Academy she couldn't be more excited except for leaving her best friend Pallas of course. I mean what could be more exciting besides becoming and going to school with goddesses and godboys...

review 1: I think this book is better than 4 stars but not as good as 5 stars so really i give this book 4 and a half stars! This book makes you want to read more and it has a twist at the end but more in the middle until almost the end the books lacks excitement its kind of typical things...

Goddess Girls The Girl Games (2012)
language
English
4.28 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This is part of the Goddess Girl series by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams that I absolutely LOVE! I've kept up with the regular series, but this "super special" publication is not part of their regular series, but a side story. The story focuses on the fact that the girls of MOA...

Mighty Dads (2014)

review 1: Join eight groundhogs (and one determined skunk!) as they learn all about forecasting the weather and the coming of spring.This was a fairly fascinating read. I had NO IDEA there were other famous prognosticating rodents out there in addition to Punxsutawney Phil, but say hello ...
Red Riding Hood Gets Lost (2014)
language
English
4.3 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I am here to admit, I love Ms. Holub’s and Ms. William’s Series The “Goddess Girls” and when I saw the chance to get to review their newest series “The Grimmtastic Girls” I jumped at it. Plus, I think a lot of boys enjoy reading books that are kind of written for girls anyway an...
Who Was Jim Henson? (2010)
language
English
4.1 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This was pretty good for its intended audience. There were lots of pictures, which was distracting for me but kids will probably like them. There was one good drawing of Carroll Spinney inside Big Bird that I thought was interesting. And there are mini-chapters about other thi...
Poseidon and the Sea of Fury (2012)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I think this may have been more clever than the first. We're still getting the story through the eyes of Zeus, "clueless godboy" according to Pythia at the beginning of the book. But we've added more characters in Hera and Poseidon--who, by the way, can't swim and thinks he'll ...
Hades and the Helm of Darkness (2013)
language
English
3.99 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Lots of action and plenty of mythology and puns make this a very fun, fast read or read-aloud for early elementary grades (par for the course, considering one of the authors wrote Library Lil.). Although this is the third in the series, it was just fine to start with--major event...
