There were lots of funny parts like that one. I liked that Poseidon wanted to name his trident after gum — that was funny. I would have liked it if there were pictures of Medusa before she got her snake hair and I wish there was more information about what happens after Medusa got turned into stone. My bottom line: I loved loved loved this book and I want to read the other books in the series. I would recommend it to girls 7 years and older. Tween girls will be able to relate to likable Athena who feels different and awkward from everyone else while juggling homework, making new friends, meeting her father for the first time, and contending with the school bullies.
It is in the Hero-ology class that the young Gods and Goddesses hone their skills in manipulating some famous mortals on Earth such as Paris and Helen of Troy, King Menelaus of Sparta, and the Greek hero Odysseus whom Athena humorously mishandles and nearly drowns by accident.

September How to write a great review. Still, Athena kept waving until the three girls were only specks walking to school together alongside the Triton River below. Of course Pallas would make new friends once she was gone, Athena knew.
Sadness washed over her at the thought, and a tear trickled down her cheek. She wiped it away. Suddenly the chariot lurched. Then it began to wobble and bounce. The wings at its sides flapped wildly as it seemed to lose its balance. Athena jerked around in her seat, her eyes wide.
Grumbling, he thumped the dials on the instrument panel with the side of his fist. Got to offload some ballast. Instead he lobbed both of her suitcases over the side of the chariot. My notescrolls!
Heartbroken, she could only watch them fall. Her invention ideas! Her journals! All her thoughts and ideas from the past twelve years had been written on those scrolls.
Now they were gone, along with most of her textscrolls. As they traveled on, Athena caught glimpses of green fields, blue seas, and cityscapes below. But they faded away as the winged chariot flew ever higher. Soon they began circling the top of a gigantic mountain. Athena leaned forward trying to see it, her long hair whipping in the wind behind her. With a burst of speed the chariot broke through a fluffy cloud.
Up ahead, her new school sprang into view almost like magic. The majestic academy gleamed in the sunlight atop the highest mountain in Greece. Built of polished white stone, it was five stories tall and surrounded on all sides by dozens of Ionic columns. Low-relief friezes were sculpted just below its peaked rooftop. Below in the courtyard, dozens of students were rushing around. Everyone seemed to have someplace to go. These were godboys and goddessgirls, she realized.
How strange to think that she was one of them. Were they nice? Would they like her? Athena clutched her bag tight. How had he guessed she was having second thoughts?
He touched down at the top of the granite steps leading up to the school and scooted her out of the chariot.
Then, without another word, he took off in a rush, leaving her behind with her bag. Probably had another urgent package to deliver. A water fountain stood just outside.
