The story of Dionysus the son of Zeus. The story shows how a group of pirates capture Dionysus thinking that they will hold him for ransom. He explains that he is the son of Zeus and they mock him. Dionysus transforms into a huge god surrounded by a lion and forces his captures into the sea a dolphins for life. The ideal for this book is that the dolphins help guide others throughout the sea. I did not know too much about Greek mythology the book gave me new information and offered great illustration. The book also used aged appropriate language when it came to introducing Greek mythology. I read this to my daughter who is in first grade and she enjoyed learning about it. Great tool to introduce the different people like Zeus in mythology. Great for Grades one to five. ( )
