Publisher Description

A laugh-out-loud funny graphic novel "for fans of either comic books or Percy Jackson, or both.”—School Library Journal

From Hercules' snake assassin slippers to Arachne's wicked weaver rap songs, these are the mythic monsters and Hellenic heroes that have captured Western culture for centuries--but a whole lot more fun. Each story showcases the wondrous and blunderful antics of gods and mortals in bright graphics that rival the super-heroic action of The Lightning Thief, burst with the knock-yoursocks- off humor of Jeff Kinney, and still remain unerringly faithful to the original myth. Kids won't be able to resist the bickering sheep, unruly rulers, and undercover details of Amazing Greek Myths--while teachers, librarians, and parents can relish this new way to share moral messages that remain as relevant today as they were a thousand years ago.

Love awesome apps ,

Good

This book is a good graphic novel. It has interesting stories of Greek mythology. The stories use sarcasm and humor to lighten the stormy

Simple drawings, not keeping to tradition

I hoped this would be a nice children's book introducing the Greek myths. Instead, it is more of a humorous take on the myths with pretty simplistic drawings and doesn't hold to the original stories. I am disappointed.
