A retelling of the story of Medusa and Perseus from Medusa's point of view.

The book starts by summarizing the original tale for those readers who might not be familiar. Then, Medusa tells "the real story." Athena is a bully whose jealous of Medusa's beauty, especially when Poseidon notices her. "I guess it's dangerous to be more beautiful than a goddess."

Bibliography of additional resources are in the back. Enrichment ideas are also in the back: If Athena told the story, how would it change? Wha

Re-telling of the story of Medusa, from her POV. Good in the sense of encouraging children to think a little more critically about their sources of information, though it still feels wrong to bowdlerize Medusa's suffering.

Art style was pretty cute, admittedly.

This really cute book tells the story of Medusa from her perspective. It teaches kids about Greek Mythology and how to look at a story from someone else’s perspective. It also has a glossary and the pictures are really cute.

The reading level of this title is perfect for early chapter book readers, once you are familiar with the Greek terminology and names. The text is in large type and not too lengthy, and the illustrations are colorful and dynamic. A good choice for kids who aren't quite ready for the Goddess Girls series. ...more
