      This book is such a great book! It's like most of the books and provides lost of info, but it also has tons of photos and it is fun to read. It isn't like a lecture in most books. It is split into fun ways and super fun to read!

            Medusa is referring to Athena, and why? Because Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and Battle, if I am remembering clearly, turned Medusa into that snake lady because she was in Athena's temple

              I love ancient Greek mythology. It is so cool! I can name the twelve Olympians. Zeus, Hera, Demeter, Apollo, Poseidon, Hermes, Aphrodite, Ares, Hephaestus,Athena, Artemis,and so on. I like Medusa, sirens, the three Gorgons, and other stuff. So if you like Greek mythology, read this! I love myths because they are so unusual. Did you know that Poseidon's girlfriend was Medusa? Did you know that Hera threw Hephaestus the off of Mount Olympus, the highest peak in Greece? Whoa! Athens was named after Athena. This stuff is cool! Hades is the god of the underworld. Nemesis is the minor god of revenge.
