Staff Pick: Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom

Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom

When ten-year-old Zeus is kidnapped, he discovers he can defend himself with a magical thunderbolt.

What do you do when giants capture you, you are “rescued” by Harpies (scary birds with witch faces), and you’re dropped in a temple where you pull a lightning bolt from a stone and it sticks to your hand?
After all  this, 10-year-old orphan Zeus is informed by the oracle Pythia that he is a hero-in-training.
He goes on to free two of the Olympians from King Cronus’ belly and they all set off on a journey which leads to more adventures in the series. Attractive to grades 3-5, this book will also lead to series like Olympians and Goddess Girls.
