School Library Journal - 05/01/2022 Gr 2–6—The oracle Pythia's flashback sets the stage for Cronus and his Titans's battle against the gods. From there, young Poseidon, Zeus, and Hera are introduced mid-chase on the run from half-giants, and the story races forward at a breakneck pace. Zeus steals the show with his lightning powers and talking charm Chip who dispenses advice in pig latin. However, once they are sailing over a boiling ocean, dealing with sirens, sea monsters, and storms, Poseidon's aquatic talents take center stage. The illustrations excel at giant splashes (pun intended) that make each set piece stand out. Hera contributes little to the adventure and is replaced by Hades midway through the story. An open cliff-hanger promises more mythological obstacles for our trio, as well as a follow-up with Hera. VERDICT Hand this to young readers who feel George O'Connor's take on Greek mythology is too slow. Works on its own. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
