it was ok
bookshelves: 2011, children-s
Read in March, 2011

I picked this up in the elementary school library, hoping that this would be a modern spin based on mythology. While Medusa was a pretty interesting character and I loved the portrayal of her snakes, the overall story was pretty lame. The Champions bully Medusa and her friends; the class has a field trip on Mount Olympus. The characters were not necessarily portrayed consistently with the mythology. The bully-bullied relationship was very two-dimensional and doesn't really serve as a guide or lesson for today's children. I would only recommend it to kids who are already interested in mythology or have a basic background.
