A creative myth that is wonderfully retold by Leonard Everett Fisher . I hope you enjoy reading the book just like I did .
It is a great teaching tool if your students are learning Ancient Greece and
it is a fun story to share just like many other myths. All Ancient Greek myths have a lot of magic, creativeness and stuff that is totally out of this world. Myths either explain the ways natural things work like lightning occurs when Zeus , king of gods throws lightning bolts down on earth . They could also teach you a lesson . Myths can get very crazy for ex. Goddess Athena was born out of Zeus' head !! I hope you have fun reading myths . :) thanks
