9780802777287: Mount Olympus Basketball

Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, and the rest of the Gods' squad have all the powers of the universe at their disposal-which makes for a deadly defense and an unstoppable offense. But those "pesky Mortals" are always causing trouble, and with hunky Hercules at the top of his game and Achilles' heel healing nicely after his surgery, the Mortals manage to stay alive until halftime. Who knows what mythological magic the Gods will have to conjure up to win this Hellenic heart stopper?

Complete with toga-clad announcers and a halftime report on the wonders of ancient Greece, Kevin O'Malley's Mount Olympus Basketball makes learning about ancient Greek myths more exciting than March Madness.

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. Grade 2-5-It's the Mortals versus the Greek Gods (and goddesses) in this madcap basketball showdown narrated with breathless abandon by two modern-day television sportscasters. Against heavy odds, the human heroes attempt to overcome the overwhelming powers of their opponents. Not surprisingly, after a tempestuous display by Zeus, the Gods take the contest with a score of 2,678,352 to 6. The book comes complete with over-the-top player introductions, savvy basketball terminology, a halftime look at ancient Greece, and more mythological references, asides, and bad puns than you can shake a caduceus at. The breezy, slightly chaotic, and intensely colored cartoon illustrations catch the speed of this fast-paced sport. Dressed in 20th-century uniforms, the players also wear accoutrements relating to their personas. For readers whose appetite for Greek mythology has been whetted, an author's note lists movies, books, and Web sites and suggests asking teachers and librarians for more information. O'Malley has found a new way to make mythology exciting in this wild contest that will find an audience among sports buffs and fans of Mount Olympus.
