Synopsis:

OMG Classics, the greatest stories ever told . . . in texts. Imagine: What if Mount Olympus got WiFi and the gods and goddesses had smartphones? The classic Greek myths get new life in irreverent and hilarious texts and posts!

Zeus, a king of the gods always in search of a new bae.
A squad of goddesses who can't resist stirring the pot.
And the selfie-obsessed heroes out for all the likes.
If you have trouble telling Perseus from Theseus (#Greek2Me) or have ever wondered about Oedipus's tragic dating profile or why Medusa's Instagram never got traction--this satirical book of Greek myths retold for the Internet age is for you!
tl;dr D'Aulaires' and Homer's Greek myths told through characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for any reader--young or old--with a sense of humor!
A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: tl;dr means too long; didn't read.

My rating: ★★★★★

tl;dr The greatest myths ever told... in texts. 👍

I love Greek mythology, so I was very curious about this book because it sounded like a lot of fun. And it was!

Hahahaha! This is the best thing ever! <3 Cas/Misha :)
