Format: Paperback
The book, "Goddess Girls - Pandora the Curious" by Joann Holub and Suzanne Williams was about a girl named Pandora who was curious and brave. She opened a box full of trouble bubbles. The bubbles scattered all over the school. Whenever a bubble hits someone, it says something. Nobody can hear it, but Pandora can. If the bubble says "rude" that person that it bumped would be rude. She captured the bubbles. The last bubble is gold and whoever it bumps will turn back to normal. She learned to never do that again.

I think kids and adults would like it because it is kind of a mystery. It is not just about Pandora, it is about God boys like Apollo or Poseidon too. My dad read it and he enjoyed it.

My favorite part was when she captured the bubbles because it was really exciting when she finally captured them. Usually I like the endings of books, so I loved this one. What is special about this book is that not most books are about Gods. I love those kind of books.

I bought 9 of these books, as my 3rd grader got a few from the school library first and loved them - read them 2-3 times! Plus, they have high point level on AR, so even better! I definitely recommend the collection!

Format: Paperback
This is a fun modern spin on Greek Mythology.
Pandora opens a box...sounds familiar?
She is just curious...did you notice her bangs make questions marks?
From the box come beautiful colored bubbles.
As the bubbles "pop," the person that got "hit" gets the bubbles characteristic.
The only problem is that these bubbles carry trouble-making characteristics such as being a ditz, being vain, and being greedy.
Only one more bubble is left in the box...and Zeus, the principle at Mount Olympus Academy, has just announced a school-wide science fair.
What will happen if the last bubble escapes?
Can Pandora reverse the spell that has been cast upon her fellow students?
A cute, cute read that will leave you seeking to know more about Greek Mythology.

I love the GG series, but today my review settles on a theory I conducted with the help of this book.
A main topic of this book is the titans, and how Epimethius brought The Mystery Box, or "Pandoras Box, with underlying tones of the titan war.

At the end of the book we learn that Zeus created the mystery box to help win the titan war, to "confuse and distract them." Notice how Hera and Demeter are Adults, while Zeus'es BROTHERS, whom he has rich rivalry with, are students and CHILDREN.

Poseidon was almost mocked and tormented by Zeus late book, which is minor solidification.
If there was a war brewing, a war so large with so much power behind it, one that would reach over all panthons such as the egyptian, norse, chinese indian and others that are mentioned over the series, and someone such as Zues and his allies wanted all the power, how would you get that to happen? To change their age to a mouldable one, put them in a school where their old sfories seep out into new tales. A school where Zues is all powerful.

With the mortals, other studebts must ASK ZEUS OR HIS OFFICIALS to even SEE THEM, OR INTERACT WITH THEM. As by noticing the clutter of empty bottles of Zues Juice, and among other things, we can already see that Zeus is putting himself into the minds of the masses through product placement... And in one of Athenas stories where she meets Hercules, Zeus has a main goal of making MORE TEMPLES FOR HIMSELF.

And probably the most defined piece of evidence is Zeus's relationship with Athena. Zeus makes her feel beloved, happy, special and cherished as he fawns her with nicknames of Theeny, an his Favorite Daughter, picking her to go to MOA in the first book.

This is a really great book and gives an interesting view on the greek history of Pandora's box.I would totally recommend this book to any girl who has interest in this type of thinking. When two titan students come to MOA and bring a magic box with them ,and Pandora opens it on accident, she goes on an adventure to fix what happened.

I love how all the books are based off of real Greek myths that can teach you lessons, their culture, and how to solve problems. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes Greek mythology and humor in their books. This is definitely worth 5 stars.

This book made me wish it never ended. I was wondering what was going to happen next every millisecond of this book. This book actually teaches a lesson. If you want to know what that lesson is you will have to read the book.
