This is a really cute book to get young people involved in reading. It has all the elements that make books for older readers successful. A magical adventure, drama, and interesting information woven into a fine story. It stimulates young readers' imaginations to learn more about Greece and to keep reading. Fine job!

Because it is so advrnturous!Annie gets bummed becouse girls are not allowed in the Olympics so she finds a way to get into the Olympics but she got found. The guards ran after them. They hopped the fence and into the racetrack. They found a cart. Jack and Annie hopped in. That's all I'm going to tell you. You have to read the rest.
