Have a Hot Time, Hades! by Kate McMullan
7 word summary: Honorable Hades? Zeus a coward? Mythology’s awesome!
Mythology, fantasy. First in the Myth-o-Mania series. Reads as stand-alone. Share with ages 8-12.
Hades takes center stage in this fractured myth, narrating the *real* story behind his birth, his early life with famous siblings Zeus and Hera (among others), and his ultimate choice to be Ruler of the Underworld. He calls out Zeus as being a myth-o-manic (that’s old Greek-speak for liar) while extolling his own virtuous behaviors in this humorous yet fact-filled tale. Fans of Greek mythology and Percy Jackson, this series is for you!
