Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-After a series of lies told to him by other animals sends Plato on a journey to Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympics, to compete in a nonexistent goat race, he returns hurt and humiliated. Illustrates the importance of telling the truth.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Kirkus Reviews

A cautionary tale about lying. Plato is a Greek goat who is duped into journeying to Olympia, where, he's been told, there is a great goat race that he is certain to win. When he arrives and finds only the ruins of the ancient stadium, where no races have been held for more than a thousand years, he realizes how both innocent flattery and deliberate deceit have combined with his own self-delusion to send him on a fool's errand. The large format and the watercolor illustrations of appealing animal characters are attractive. The Greek countryside is faithfully rendered, with many scenes enclosed by borders incorporating classical designs. For those seeking explicitly moralistic materials, there are also suggestions for ``teaching'' children to be honest and questions for discussion.

Format: Hardcover
Set in ancient Greece, Plato's Journey is the story of a Peloponnese goat of extraordinary speed named Plato. Some ill-told lies propel Plato on a grand voyage to the great goat race at Olympia. During his long travels, he meets a wide variety of colorful characters from an easygoing pig to a prideful rooster and an eagle messenger from truth. Plato learns the vital importance of honesty, in this enjoyable story beautifully illustrated with watercolors capturing the essence of athletic animal action.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The premise sounded good, but it reads too much like a lesson, and less like a story. My kids weren't very interested in it, and it doesn't really have much reread value.
