Heroes in Training: Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom
Author

Review
It's great. I never thought there could be multiple stories about Zeus and his brothers and sisters. I read the Percy Jackson books, and it had different stories about the Gods. That led me to borrow this book, and I loved it!  Request this book
