Summary
"What do an olive tree, an owl, and a plumed helmet all have in common? Each one is a symbol of Athena, the goddess of wisdom. When the ancient Greeks found themselves in a difficult situation, they would pray to this daughter of Zeus for guidance. Of course, like the other gods and goddesses, Athena was not without faults. Her fierce independence often led her to rebel against her father and to fight with her many brothers and sisters. But she also came to their aid over and over again, proving herself to be worthy of her title--and all the respect with which it came"--

Review
(The following is a combined review for Hercules; Apollo; Athena; Thor; and ) Gr 4 – 8 — Serious students will find substantial information packed into these slim packages. Hercules , which begins with a bit of Roman history, is the most coherent. The other books each start with an anecdotal account of contemporary children engaged in an activity that leads to an encounter with a mythical character. These books are weighed down by quotations from subject authorities and other explanations. The busy format combines dense text, occasional one-page essays, and plentiful decorative elements. All the volumes end with a discussion of the subject's lasting influence. Evidently intended to serve Common Core goals, these offerings include extensive lists of adult resources in author's notes for each chapter and long lists of "Works Consulted" along with short bibliographies of childrens books and some Internet sources. VERDICT Not heavy on kid appeal, this set might serve for teaching purposes and offer material for report writing. --Margaret Bush (Reviewed November 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 11, p12)
