This wasn't my favourite book in the series but I think it was a good addition to it. I loved seeing some familiar faces from earlier in the series that don't go to MOA, as well as getting more of two of my favourites; Hades and Pandora, AND the awesome new character of Delphinius, but I thought the story let this book down.

Maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention, because although the whole contest thing seemed cool at first, I soon found it to be overcomplicated and very badly paced, in my

I love Poseidon, the plot is very interesting.
Nice fun story. Not destined to win lit prizes but a pleasant story, with clear good and bad groups. Amphitrite, is a good mergirl but she has never managed to do the transformation spell to be able to go from ocean to land. She gets to join a competition that Zeus has set up for MOA (Mount Olympus Academy) that’s fun till the giants and Geia, their Mom, crashes. The rules are changed to include a team of giants. Will Poseidon, her captain, and her team manage to win against the cheating giants? ...more
This was selected by my four year old daughter, who I'm sure picked it based on the cover. She seemed to like the story even though I'm sure that she didn't understand most of it. I found the effort to incorporate Greek mythology amusing, but not especially well done or clever. We haven't read any other books in the series, so maybe I'd be more appreciative of character development across books, but it's hard to say. This is definitely a book for young readers and a young audience with little cr ...more

Amphitrite the Bubbly is part of the Goddess Girls series by Joan Holub. The Goddess Girls books (including this book) are some of my favorite summer reads. The books in this series put a modern twist on Greek mythology to somewhat relate to young girls today. This particular book is about a young mermaid named Amphitrite who meets the Mount Olympus students on the adventure of a lifetime. I would recommend this book (or this series) to pretty much all young girls looking for quick reads of abou ...more

I was surprised by how much I liked this book, especially because it figures Poseidon heavily and up until this book, he was my least favorite character in the series. But Amphitrite is such a nice character that she changes Poseidon for the positive. Great surprise, late in the game.

It was really nice to read about mermaids for once!

I like the book but I don't like how point of view is split between Amphitrite and Poseidon. I like the temple games. 💖

I'm obsessed with these books now. ...more

Spoiler Alert!
It is interesting because of the race and riddles, but could make the book include more people and more elements (eg. in the underworld, etc).

Ah. This book.

I desperately wanted to love it. This was the first book I read after having revisited the series and I really wanted to get wrapped up in this book and this story and all of these familiar characters. Instead I was left feeling so bleeeeh about it? It was kind of nice to get all the warm nostalgia fuzzy feels from the story, but the story itself was just so boring and substanceless and pointless that it felt hard to truly enjoy. The fact that the main characters of the original

Cute but not my favorite. Although Amphitrite's portions are delightful; once Poseidon starts to have POV chapters it begins to drag; mostly because his only driving ambition is to Win a Temple from the Games Zeus is holding and he doesn't mind being a bit of a jerk to do so. Amphitrite has a lovely few scenes in her undersea world before becoming a legged land-version of a mermaid for the entire rest of the story. There's a contest to see which of 7 groups of 5 students (some from MOA and other ...more

An interesting addition to the Goddess Girls series, this story seems to have more than the usual amount of point-of-view of a godboy. Specifically Poseidon. I found the changes in PoV to be well-done and to add to the story. The book seems to include not only a moral as usual but also a gentle reminder of courtesy and its benefits. I liked the flaws in the characters and the fact that the main female character wasn't a goddessgirl, thus having fewer powers. I felt this gave her a chance to show ...more

Another cute book to keep me going between releases of my 'Must Have Now' books!

It really is amazing how Joan Holub is able to twist the classic myths into child friendly completely different stories! The great thing about these books (at least for me) is that the characters are (for the most part) in their early teen years and not only do they act like it, but throughout the series they have grown in a believable manner as people.

Can't wait to get my hands on the next book!

Fun book! Even though this is a children's book I still like to read it because it's a nice twist on Greek mythology and the gods and goddesses!

So this one was interesting since it was mermaids in it so that was cool... Though Poseidon is described as a real jerk and I don't really like that way perceiving him.

Overall a good little mythology book, looking forward to the next one.
Cute but I felt the ending was rushed. I didn't like that the Temple Games were (view spoiler) And I still think Poseidon is a weenie. ...more

This book was pretty fun and entertaining. It told the story of a mergirl named Amphritite who traveled to MOA to complete in the games.

I liked it, but since I enjoy reading Greek mythology, it got annoying reading the book because of how the actual mythology in the book was written.

amphitrite is really pretty and i think poisiden was wrong and i think he is pretty selfish i should say even though i felt bad that he did not get his temple and i knew it was hard cause i am a sore loser.

I had never heard of this character from Greek mythology; however, she is like the little mermaid in a way, except she has a lot more sisters. Just like the little mermaid, she wishes to live on land.
