If you are looking for entertainment, my daughters loved them. If you are looking for accurate Greek mythology, my son was quite appalled. My eight-year-old is a reluctant reader, but she could not put these down and begged for the entire series.

Trouble is brewing in MOA.

Penthe is going gaga over Acteon, Freya's necklace is missing, Artemis is busy preparing the games, and let's not forget the kitten wars between Aphrodite and Persephone.

Liittle Adonis( the kitten Aphrodite found) is a very spoiled kitten.Both Aphrodite and Persephone are very protective of Adonis. From Pesephone feeding dog food to Aphrodite forgetting to buy kitty litter, both goddessgirls are trying to prove the opponet that everything she does is wrong.

Artemis is very worried about Acteon and angry at Penthe. Penthe makes a very noticeable show of blowing a dramatic kiss to Acteon, trying to throw Artemis off on the archery contest.

Athena is concerned that Heracles won't be able to make it to the Heraean Games. He promises there will be a suprise after the games.

Williams and Holub are brilliant authors!

"The Girl Games" is about how four of the goddess girls from Mount Olympus Academy create the first-ever girls-only Olympics. Girls and goddesses from around the world come to compete, but the Goddess Girls can't get everything together for the games! Then they find out the games might be canceled! If the games were canceled they wouldn't get another chance for a girls' Olympics so they must make the games happen.

I think other kids would like this book because it puts a spin on the old Greek mythology. There are references to the myths, except the author tells you what happened as if they were happening in this century.

My favorite part is when Aphrodite is in charge of ordering supplies and instead of ordering 20 items, she orders 20 BOXES of the items! I think this book is special because it shows that if kids put their minds to it, they can do anything! I give this book a 5 star rating because it was funny, relatable, and a great read.

My 8 yr old daughter LOVES this series. We stumbled across it after she had an interest in Percy Jackson books and enjoys Monster High. The series is fun, creative and interesting. It makes the stories of the Greek Gods accessible to a younger audience and has inspired her new love of ancient stories. The stories may stray slightly from the original tales but are light-hearted and humorous. My daughter does read above her grade level but flies through each novel. I don't imagine girls who read on their grade level having any problems.

My daughter says....at first it was alittle slow if you already know the people who act in it. Otherwise it was really fun to read. You get a joke here and there in the book. The end was sad because you wish the book went on and on and on and on and on.

My daughter started reading these age nine and she loves them. Not only does she enjoy the story, but her knowledge and curiosity of mythology has crossed over into history and other areas of play and study. So many references to this in our world, so I applaud this series.

Like I said, lots of action and more! I like how Joan Holub describes and tells how these girls lives are. Just the right amount of realistic parts and imaginary parts.

All in all a very good book for ages 8-12.

My daughter LOVES this series! She would only read now and again, but now she reads Goddess Girls every night before bed and whizzes through them! Not only are the books great, but I contacted Joan Holub to ask about the next book "set" and she didn't just respond to my inquiry, she offered to send my daughter autographed postcards from her and Suzanne. She also sent my daughter an autographed "What Were The Salem Witch Trials?" book because my daughter's name is Salem! They arrived just before her birthday and Christmas. I highly recommend this series, and I highly recommend this author's other works as well!
