Cute book with gods and goddesses as children. Action as the kids are outrunning Cronos's army, true to the real myths (they are put into a large jar and it's rolled down the hill). Comedic and light hearted, fun for 2-3rd graders.

My 7-year old read this to me. Heroes in Training is a fun series for early readers, either for reading aloud or independent reading. My son really digs it.

“them, but the Crony army had captured Hestia, Demeter, and Hades. Zeus tried not to think about that now. He couldn’t save anybody if the Cronies captured him, too. “We should stand and fight!” Ares yelled. “You’ve never fought Cronies before!” Zeus replied, looking back at Ares. He was the newest member of the Olympians. Ares had lived with a family of giant Titans his whole life up till now. “We may not be stronger than they are, but we’re always faster. We just— Oof!” Zeus tripped over a rock and fell facedown onto the ground. Before he could get back to his feet, he felt a hand grip each of his arms. Hera and Poseidon had grabbed him. They pulled him up. These two Olympians—along with Hades, Hestia, and Demeter—were Zeus’s brothers and sisters. (Although, they had only just found this out.) Even though Apollo wasn’t their brother, he had joined the group like he was one of them too. His singing rhymes were both funny and kind of annoying! “Nice move, Bolt Breath!” Hera teased. “I didn’t see it!” Zeus protested. “Um, guys—still running!” Poseidon called back, jogging ahead of them. Apollo caught up to them. “I see some trees up on the right. If we hide there we’ll be out of sight,” sang the blond-haired boy. “How can you rhyme at a time like this?” Hera asked, rolling her blue eyes. “Hiding in the trees is a good idea. Let’s go!” Zeus cried. They veered toward the right and headed into the stand of trees. Zeus came to a stop, panting. “We need a plan,” he said. “There are four half-giant Cronies chasing us, but there’s a whole army of them in the canyon below. They won’t stop until they find us.” “We need Pythia,” Poseidon said, frowning. The Oracle of Delphi always showed up to tell them what to do next. But after they’d found Ares, she hadn’t appeared. “That’s why we’ve got to lose these half-giants and get to Delphi,” Zeus told him. Ares’s red eyes flashed. “Forget losing them. Let’s attack them!” “These guys don’t go down easily,” Zeus said. “And even if we defeat the first four, there’s a whole army behind them.” “Shhh!” Hera warned, quickly darting behind a tree. “I think they’re close-by.” Apollo, Poseidon, and Zeus all scrambled to hide behind trees too. But not Ares. He raised his spear and charged through the trees, screaming so loudly that the sound echoed through the hills. “I am Ares the Olympian! Feel my anger!” he yelled. “We shall not be defeated!” “Oh no,” Hera whispered. “Is he serious?” He was. Zeus thought Ares looked pretty ferocious as he sped through the trees with his sharp spear, spiky brown hair, and weird, fiery eyes.” 0 likes
