What a myth-o-maniac (that's old Greek-speak for "liar")! Zeus's version of the myths is completely wrong. It's time to set the record straight. For the first time ever, Hades, King of the Underworld, reveals the true story behind the myths.

That story about Perseus whacking the head off of the horrible snaky-haired Gorgon, Medusa? Oh, please. He got turned into a hunk of stinky cheese — gorgon-zola, of course!

How could I resist another funny tale about mythology from the amazing Kate McMullan? I couldn't.

Another book in the Myth-o-Maniac series, Hades is again the narrator and commentator on this tale of how Medusa got a headful of snakes. It was all because of a party after all. And an angry goddess of course.

These books are written in such a humorous way and definitely bring the myths down to more of an elementary level so that younger students can read these books. I definitely enjoyed this story of Perseus and Medusa and the humorous spin put on it by our narrator Hades.

Final Verdict:

Definitely a series for younger readers that enjoy mythology and humorous fiction. I can't wait to put these in my library and see my students reading them.
