And that story about Atalanta losing a race because she stopped to collect the golden apples that Melanion threw in her path? Applesauce! The only gold that mattered to Atalanta was the Olympic Gold Medal for the 50-dekameter dash--and all the six-figure endorsements that would be hers--if she won it!

This is the eighth book in the Myth-O-Mania series by Kate McMullan. These books are fun to read and have a youthful and humorous perspective that makes it simple for people to remember the various characters and their stories.

We are balancing these fun tales off with more classic fare, like The Wanderings of Odysseus: The Story of the Odyssey by Rosemary Sutcliff, so our girls can hear the original tales, too.

This book offers a humorous take on the story of Atalanta - we really enjoyed the wi

This book is another book in the Myth o Mania series. Thies books are greek myths but from Hadies's point of view. This one is the myth about Atlanta. She was raised by bairs. She was realy a princess. She always wanted to be in the olympics for wresteling but her dad kidnapted her and made her run.

I can make a text to self connecton to this book. In this book Atlanta had to do lots of running against her will. At my soccer practus my coach makes us run alot almost every time.

So, Atalanta was the first human feminist?

Peleus who? Second greatest hero every? I think not.

These Fates are annoying.

Atalanta's dad: what a douche.

Woohoo, she never had to marry and saved her friend. But why, oh why do Aphrodite and Hera have to butt into everything. If a girl doesn't want to marry, just feel with it!

A book about the greek myth of Atlanta, the true story, because Zeus messed up the version that most people read. Funny and Witty.
