Ancient Greece comes to life once again with the release of this fun series’s fourth book. Each one can be read on its own in any order. The informative two beginning pages have details about the seven main animal characters. Read this first as any question you might have about what these Greek mythology named animals are trying to accomplish are answered.
When the group leaves the Mount Olympus Pet Center in Athens, Georgia, they use their portal to arrive at the underworld. There they encounter dangerous creatures and the Greek god Hades who is not all all happy to see the intruders.
The action moves swiftly through 40 chapters and include black and white illustrations throughout. This adventure ends on a cliff hanger and you get a sneak peak at the first pages of Book 5.
