Is there a better combination than myths and animals? 🙂 Today we would like to present you our recent discovery – the children’s book series written by Crispin Boyer, titled “Zeus the Mighty”. The age range of the series readers: 8-12 years.
The first volume “Zeus the Mighty: The Quest for the Golden Fleas” was published in 2019, the second one “Zeus The Mighty: The Maze of the Menacing Minotaur” in May, 2020. Both were issued by Under the Stars publisher, which is a part of National Geographic Kids Book.
In the story we move to Athens in Georgia (USA), where we meet the residents of “Mount Olympus” – pet supply and rescue center. The main character is Zeus – the hamster, and his friends: cat Athena, proud pufferfish Poseidon, the royal grasshopper Demeter, and the pug called Ares. The animals love to listen to the “Greeking Out” podcast run by Artie – the owner of the “Mount Olympus” who loves Greek mythology. Listening to the stories of ancient gods and goddesses, the pets start to believe themselves to be the mythical characters. They also began to have great adventures!
On the National Geographic Kids website, children can find lots of activities related to the book series, inter alia games, quizes, “truth behind” section, and the “Greeking Out” podcast. Parents and teachers can find a printable “Educator’s Guide” to download.
We hope you will enjoy it!
