About the Author:

Eric Braun has written more than one hundred books for kids and teens, including many about sports. He coaches youth baseball and soccer, has two sports-loving sons, and has suffered many disappointments as a lifelong fan of the Minnesota Twins.

Stephen Gilpin is the illustrator of several dozen children's books and is currently working on a project he hopes will give him the ability to walk through walls ― although he acknowledges there is still a lot of work to be done on this project. He currently lives in Hiawatha, Kansas, with his genius wife, Angie, and their kids.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–5—With kidfriendly illustrations and a clever narrative voice, these twisted myths will have kids chuckling. For example, in the story of the Cyclops and Odysseus, Polyphemus explains that he ate Odysseus's companions because he believed the old saying "You are what you eat" and he desperately wanted to become human. The stories of Medea and Medusa stick closer to the original source material, with the two women blaming the gods for their woes—a true reflection of Greek mythology, where typically blame did boil down to the interference of the gods (and perhaps a little pride on the part of the mortals). A critical thinking section at the end will guide teachers to using these books in classroom discussions about mythology, and the notes on integrating Common Core topics is helpful. Though the books are humorous, they may be confusing to those unfamiliar with the original tales. The additional sources recommended in the end notes will aid interested readers in tracking down further retellings.
