Mythlopedia Trivia: Have you heard that Zeus had a habit of swallowing his family members? Hungry for more? Well, Did you know that Pandora’s Box was really a jar? Still curious? How about the fact that Pan had the head and body of a human but the legs, horns, ears and beard of a goat… It’s all Greek to me, but maybe you can understand the bizarre behaviors of the Greek gods by reading this Look-It-Up Guide to the Gods of Mythology. Oh My Gods! is a silly, fast paced non-fiction collection of profiles, cartoon sketches, family trees and strange (and fun) facts of the Greek gods and goddesses. Make sure to check out the others in this Scholastic Mythlopedia book series, She’s All That, What a Beast, and All in the Family, too –because once you start reading about the ‘gods, goddesses, heroes, mortals and monsters of Greek mythology’ you wont be able to get enough.
