Are you ready to get your myth on? Then you've come to the right place: Mytholopedia, your one stop shop for all you need to know about the stars of Greek mythology from Scholastic. Facts are presented in "teen-speak" such as a love letter from Aphrodite, a tough girl rallying cheer from Artemis and a missing persons post from Demeter about her daughter Persephone. There is even a text message from Eos including OMGs (plural) and chatter of her crush on Tithonus that is 4-real. While tongue-in-cheek in its presentation, the content is inclusive of many facts students should know about the characters of mythology. Lots of color pictures and graphics break up the narrative to make these book very engaging and readable for kids in middle and high school. I had fun reading the Goddess book! Classical paintings and statues have silly add-ons like bikinis and sunglasses on the Three Graces, giving them a PG rating.

If you are looking to get a reluctant student on board with the subject, this is a great resource. It is hilarious! Hera's Big Journal of Revenge (in the Goddess book) has funny pictures of all the women who crossed her path in a bad way including Zeus' Ex-Wives Club. I think that once kids read one of these, they would want to read the others. There is also a list for further reading and some websites to explore and learn more. 120 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
