Apollo must find a way to keep his siblings civil towards each other, while trying to survive when their father, Zeus, turns them into human children. Apollo and his brothers and sisters, have never been children, but Zeus suddenly alters their lifestyle because he finds his children disrespectful. Apollo and his siblings do not appreciate his actions.
The sisters are Athena, Aphrodite and Artemis. Aphrodite believes she belongs with her silk and on a throne, not in any loft in a barn. Artemis, the Goddess of Youth, likes to swim, but on their journey, hunts for food. The brothers Ares, Hephaestus and Hermes, will learn much on the journey too.
Zeus turns his children into humans insisting it is to teach them a lesson. They have become selfish and greedy with power. Zeus sends them to the island of Crete where he was raised, to learn their way back to the Olympus. Apollo is faced with trying to keep his siblings organized, as they face many crises on their learning adventure but will it be enough to help them find their way back home?
Little Greek Gods is a poignant story that is not only incredibility well-written, but makes the reader actually feel the emotions the children endure while on their adventure. It was amazing watching them growing up learning about humility and respect, not to mention little moments of feeling hunger and learning to work for money to exist. I believe Fran Shaff composes a truly extraordinary story that captures the heart and captivates the soul. This story is a pure delight in every way.
