Say Cheese, Medusa! (Myth-O-Mania Series #3) [NOOK Book]

Overview

In Greek mythology, Medusa was a Gorgon — a winged monster with snakes for hair. Anyone who looked at her was instantly turned to stone. But she wasn't born that way. Not even close. Athena was so jealous of Medusa's beauty that she cursed her. Zeus changed the story to make his son, Perseus, look good. Hades is here to set the record straight on Perseus, Medusa, and everything in between.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
Young readers will enjoy the humor as they learn the "truth" behind the infamous stories of the Ancient Greek Gods according to Hades, God of the Underworld. The novel provides a new perspective, and offers an amusing and educational approach to the history and myths of Ancient Greece. This unique narrator, Hades, claims to know the "real" stories as opposed to the original storyteller, his brother Zeus, also known as the "big fat liar." Readers can get to know the real Medusa, and the truth behind that creepy head of snakes. "King Hades's Quick and Easy Guide to the Myths" found in the back of the book will further assist readers in learning and remembering the Greek Gods and the abilities they each possess. Also, readers can flip to the glossary for any help with unfamiliar words and use the discussion and writing prompts to further his or her reading experience. Children can also expand their interest in Greek mythology by checking out the many other books of the "Myth-O-Mania" series. Educators can use this series as a new approach to teaching the Ancient Greek Myths. It can be helpful in promoting and reinforcing comparing and contrasting skills using Hades and Zeus as the subject. Whether for educational use or personal reading enjoyment, children will enjoy this novel. Reviewer: Lisette Baez

    This Book Rocks!!!!!!

    i love this book so much. it totally got me into Greek Mythology and i think that it is really funny from Hades point of view. Kate McMullan has totally given Hades another personality that most wouldn't even consider for the poor guy. i think that we seriously need to start rethinking our views of the greek god of the underworld

    whatever

    The first book (Have a Hot Time Hades) was really good. Then it sort of went downhill, but I would recomend all of these books if you don't have anything to read.

    The best Myth book ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This book was to good to put down. When school got in the way I had to stop reading it. I was almost done too.Then two years later I started reading it again. I was so happy to start to read it again. School got in the way again so I stopped.:( Then two monthes later I started reading it again. I was jumping happily and crazily around my house because I was finished. I am going to read it again and again. Thats how much I liked it.
