This book was a lot of fun, as always. Get Lost, Odysseus! tells the story of Odysseus on his way back home to Ithaca after the Trojan War, a retelling of The Odyssey, if you will. The story is narrated by the Greek god Hades, and he just give it a really fun twist! There a lot of great characters including gods and monsters like Polyphemus... HA! Idjit ;) And Cerberus! Totally adorable!
One thing I really love about this series is that it's so funny! It also has a ton of action and is a really easy read, perfect for kids! Especially since the author does a fantastic job recounting the myths. I do admit that I'm super picky when it comes to Greek myths, so I found some things that made me go, "Um, what? That's not right!" For example, Hermes is a god of a lot of thing, but he is NOT the god of medicine. That's more Apollo's domain. Sure Hermes carries around the famous caduceus, but that was actually a gift from Apollo. But overall, I think it's great for kids wanting to learn the myths in a fun way :)
