Overview

Pandy has recaptured six of the great Evils that she "accidentally" let loose, and now our foursome--Pandy, Alcie, Iole, and Homer--is on the hunt for the worst of them all: Fear. The team must journey into the dreaded underworld for their final adventure.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Harry Potter meets Edith Hamilton in this cheeky rendition of Pandora's famous faux pas.... This loosely interpreted myth rarely misses a comic twist." —Publishers Weekly, starred review on Pandora Gets Jealous

"This witty introduction to Olympus and the Greek gods will keep modern goddesses . . . hooked." —St. Louis Dispatch, on Pandora Gets Jealous

"It won't be hard to sell this to Rick Riordan fans." —Kirkus Reviews, on Pandora Gets Jealous

"Hennesy ably creates tension through unpredictable pacing, the inclusion of unexpected villains, and the satisfyingly over-the-top interventions of the gods." —BCCB, on Pandora Gets Jealous

Children's Literature - Denise Hartzler
More mythic misadventures have the main character Pandora (Pandy) trying to capture one of the Great Evils. Pandy and her friends, Alcie, Iole, and Homer franticly search for the worst of Evil of all—fear. The team journeys into the dreaded underworld for their final adventure. In this series finale, Pandy finds herself going somewhere she never really wanted to go, the Underworld. Facing her own fear along with Hera and Demeter throwing obstacles in her way, can Pandy and her friends have enough time to satisfy Zeus, the King of the Gods? Pandy's journey does not come without a struggle. Facing chaos keeps the pace of the story moving in a forward direction that ends in triumph. The message is clear to the readers and they will relate with how Pandy takes responsibility for her actions. Interwoven with educational facts about Greek mythology, Carolyn Hennesy does a wonderful job bringing an exciting conclusion to the "Mythic Misadventure" series. This is a highly recommended read for any fourth to sixth grader who likes mythology and a classic action adventure read. This series is also recommended for any girl who wants a strong role model in fiction and boys who want an action-heavy read with mythology intertwined. A moral laden book that is easy to understand for its intended reading age group. Reviewer: Denise Hartzler
