Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hermes—also known as Mercury, Wayfinder, and Prince of Thieves—has many talents. Wearing his famed winged sandals, he does the bidding of his father Zeus, leads the dead down to Hades, and practices his favorite arts of trickery and theft. He also sees the future, travels invisibly, loves jokes, and abhors violence. And hes an entertaining and ideal narrator on a fast-paced journey through ancient Greek mythology—from Medusas cave to Trojan War battlefields to the mysterious Underworld.

Stephanie Spinner brings the famous messenger—and the best-known gods and mortals of mythology—to life with high action and spare, powerful prose.

From the Hardcover edition.

Shannon Mauldin, December 7, 2012 (view all comments by Shannon Mauldin)
A great introduction to Greek mythology for children and adults alike! The humor and personality leaps off the page and Spinner manages to include a wide variety of Greek myths without overwhelming the reader. The 12 Olympians are introduced, as well as the myth of Hades and Persephone, the Golden Apple, the Trojan War, Medusa, Argos, Perseus and Andromeda, and Odysseus and Calypso.
