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.

Annie and Jack got a mission to go back to when the olimpics was formed. When they get there lots of funny, interesting and courious things happen.

This book begs the question "Why doesn't anyone ever notice that even though they've got new clothes on, Jack and Annie never change their hair or Jack's glasses when they go back in time?" I'm getting pretty tired of watching Annie wander around in historical costumes with braids. Anyway, they go to Ancient Greece and see the olympics, but, of coarse Annie gets in trouble because she completely ignores the whole "no girls allowed" deal. They're saved by a pegasus and all is well.

Jack and Annie go on an adventure to Ancient Greece, during the first Olympic games. They have to find a lost scroll of poetry from a secret author. They find out lots of facts and information about what happened at the ancient Olympics. This book would be great for grades 3-5 or up because it is an easy reader novel and has good facts about Ancient Greece that can be used with a unit introducing Ancient Greece.
