Meet the most impressive of the gods and goddesses of Olympus-and even a few monsters-and see them revealed for what they really were: ancient superheroes with the power to shift shape, move mountains, and change fate. In this innovative introduction to Greek mythology, energetic poems and dynamic comic book style illustrations create a seamless blend of the ancient and contemporary that depicts the gods in all their super-human glory.

Book Description:

A new spin on Greek mythology, featuring the gods as superheroes

Synopsis:

In this richly illustrated picture book for middle-graders, the Greek gods and goddesses are served up to kids a la comic book superheroes. In a perfect fit of topic and art style, and a seamless blend of ancient and contemporary sensibilities, the key characteristics of each of twelve major gods/goddesses of Greek myth are delivered via Charles Smith's accessible, stylish poems, while P. Craig Russell's vividly-coloured comic-art-inspired graphic portraits draw the reader in. This innovative introduction to the classics boldly sets itself apart from the typically bland stand-bys. Teachers and parents often clamour for anything that makes such topics - as well as poetry itself - more accessible to students, and THE MIGHTY TWELVE is just what they're looking for!
