Have a Hot Time, Hades!

Have a Hot Time, Hades!

Series: Myth-O-Mania
by Kate McMullan Illustrated by David LaFleur

Think you know the real story behind the Greek myths? Think again. Most people only know what Zeus wants them to. But the truth is, Zeus is a total myth-o-maniac. Hades, King of the Underworld, is here to set the record straight on how he ended up as Ruler of the Underworld and Zeus became King of the Gods. When Hades and his siblings were born, their father Cronus swallowed them whole because of a prophecy that said one of his children would be mightier than he. Can Hades and his brothers and sisters overthrow their big, bad dad? It's sure to be a hot time, Hades!
