The young Olympians have been sent to search for hairy snakes. Zeus is not very excited about it, he doesn’t like snakes. They meet a mortal named Perseus who gives mislead them. Luckily they have each other and quite a few magical objects. When they find the ‘hairy snakes’ will they be able to defeat this terrifying nemesis?
As a read-alone, this book #14 is impossible to understand, there are a ton of characters and references to past adventures. I have a couple of fourth graders who love this series. This is a fun read for Greek mythology fans, but everyone else would just be confused.
