Greek mythology that she is willingly learning about the true history mythology that she is willingly learning about the true history that area of the world for her own personal knowledge In other words she is every children s librarian s dream patron I show her what we have and then we get to talking about mythology She s a huge fan of the D Aulaires Bo This is a really uick intro to the beginning of the Olympians reign but I think it purposely left out a lot of information that could have been included so that later volumes would have it The art was okay for me but I didn t find it incredibly jaw dropping or anything A solid 3 stars Your hair it looks nice thanks I m hooked First it was a fast read Only about an hour if ou include the extra reading materials the authorillustrator has at the back of the book I love when The No 1 Car Spotter and the Car Thieves No1 Car Spotter you can tell that the author is really invested in giving an accurate portrayal of stories from history In this case George O Connor givesou his bibliography including some websites that I have to still explore and recommended titles for Giant Steps to Change the World younger and older readers Really appreciate this This is one of my first graphic novels that I have read I have plans to read next It took me a while to figure out that there isn t really a set way thatou read these meaning the format is dictated by the panels and the panels don t really have any rules as far as two page spreads go Cool to think about with regards to earbook design I also loved the Author s Note section and the GeekGreek Noets section which really made me want to look at all the names again and how we have so many words derived from this time and to go read the original stories of Homer and Hesiod and the Great Books series I have in our library I thought originally that I would loan these to my niece or nephew I think maybe when they are older Right now they are 9 and 7 On to Athen.

L adaptation of the Greek myths to my knowledgeWhat I liked about this book was that it s not a reinterpretation or modern spin on classic mythology It is the artist s interpretation of course but he has done his research and gone back to the sources He includes a bibliography and he s read his HesiodThis is the actual Greek origin story starting with Gaea and Ouranos the rebellion of the Titans led by Kronos against their father followed by the battle between the Titans and the first
Olympians Told as if it were a single issue of aTold as if it were a single issue of a book starring Zeus "AS A STILL YOUNG BRASH GOD THE ART AND "a still oung brash god The art and makes it very much a superhero comic New Erotica for Feminists Satirical Fantasies of Love Lust and Eual Pay yet it s a perfectly authentic version of Greek mythologyThe Titans are titanic Zeus and his siblings are gods but don t seem all powerful against the Titans The Cyclopes and Hekatonchieres and ancient and scary The battles are epicAt times the art was a little anime ish especially with Metis and the target audience is obviously children there are even discussion uestions and glossaries in the back But this is still an attractive volume that will appeal to all fans of Greek mythology and I ll probably collect the series I love this series I had never heard the story of how Zeus got his lightning bolt This story tells that story I didn t know the details of Zeus fighting his father and the Titans I simply knew he overthrew his father Now I do George goes and gets great stories about the Greek gods and there is always something new and fresh There are so many stories to tell about Zeus and all his long list of conuests andet George focuses on the beginning of the pantheon of gods we know as Greek mythology He does so well in what he brings out I do wish this had been longer and story Zeus is part of so many stories The art is fantastic The lightning jumps of the page He really brought something to life on the page and this is a must read for anyone who loves mythology I would like to own these There is so much energy that jumps off the page Wonderful retelling of how Zeus became king of the gods Engaging and Ost terrifying of all the Titans reigns as the unchallenged tyrant of the cosmosuntil his son the god Zeus sta.

OF THE HOME FOR THE OLYMPIANSthe home for the olympians of the home for the Olympians Mount OlympusFantastic first book in a new ongoing series retelling the Greek myths The story here is very well represented going right back to the beginning with Gaea The Cyclopes The Hekatonchieres and the Titans even before the birth of Zeus This part of Greek mythology is often confusing to children I never could understand it as a kid and the graphic representation especially of the Titans and the Hekatonchieres with their fifty heads and one hundred hands is the ideal format for telling this myth This story is also hardly ever included in children s Greek Myth collections and I ve read many such collections over the last 16 The New Roger's Profanisaurus years to my children I feel uite confident in saying the author has done a brilliant job of re telling Zeus story in an exciting format The illustrations are dark and unusual as to fit the subject matter from Kronos and the eating of his children to Zeus final battle with his father The book ends with the final destinies of those who came before Zeus and looks forward with a frame of Zeus with his ueen brothers and sisters and his children preparing us for the next volume There is also some extra info at the end with an Author s Note Fact pages on four characters a Notes section referenced to pages and panels and finally a further reading section both forounger and older readers I m very impressed This is a keeper for me and I d highly recommend it as a library purchase Surprised I have never come across this series before or that no one has done a straight graphic nove.
