Great Series - Adventure, Mythology and Overcoming Fears...
Reviewed in the United States on August 1, 2014
My 8 year old son loved this book and the "Heroes in Training" series!
This series is a fun, inventive way to introduce children to mythology. The Olympians are 10 year olds who must discover their powers and overthrow the Titans. Along with introducing the mythological characters and creatures, the book provides a nice message of overcoming fears and discovering oneself. Zeus, terrified of lightning storms, must learn to embrace his new powers, and rather than starting as a powerful god, he is happy attempting to be a hero. I read this first book in the series out loud to my 5 and 8 year old sons on a car trip. They enjoyed the adventure and sometimes cheesy humor. Then my 8 year old devoured the following books in the series. I was happy to find a series for him that he would actually chose to read over playing video games! Highly recommended.
