Review: Have a Hot Time, Hades!


Have a Hot Time, Hades! by Kate McMullan

7 word summary: Greek mythology explained from Hades’s perspective?  Yes!

Fantasy, mythology.  Series (Myth-o-Mania).  Reads well as a stand-alone.  Share with ages 7-12.

First-born of the Greek gods, Hades tells the story of his birth, his siblings (including the “myth-o-maniac” [liar] Zeus), and the battle with his father Cronus and the Titans.  Humorous and informative, Hades explains exactly how he ended up as Ruler of the Underworld (hint: it involves a poker game with Zeus!)  With a sprinkling of illustrations, plenty of white space, and an attractive font size, this is ideal for Greek Mythology geeks or fans of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series.  Recommended.
