Apollo: The Brilliant One by George O'Connor - ADVISABLE

O’Connor, George Apollo: The Brilliant One, 78 pgs. GRAPHIC NOVEL Roaring Brook Press, 2016. $17.99. Language: G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG13.  

The story of the god Apollo is told by the muses contains 7 different stories including his birth, his battle with Pythos, his pursuit of Daphne, death of Hyacinth and several others.  

The muses are very poetic which makes the reading level rather difficult, (words like formidable and prognostication for example),  but the graphic novel format helps the ready considerably.  Part of the Olympians graphic series, this addition is well done and exciting (albeit a bit violent - but after all it is mythology!)
