Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076363302X, Paperback)"Filled with wild adventures, bad puns, and classical allusions, this slapstick sheds light on the gods, heroes, and philosophers of antiquity." — THE HORN BOOK
Behold Gryllus, sarcastic former crewman of Odysseus, changed by Circe into a swine — and happy to stay that way. Life is just fine until the prophetess Sibyl tells him that the world’s in grave danger and that the only one who can save it is . . . a talking pig. Well, fan-bloomin’-tastic! Full of nonstop action and oddly familiar characters, from a lyrestrumming poet to the testy gods and goddesses, this comical quest will tickle young readers and earn a place on teachers’ and librarians’ shelves.

A translation of an ancient Greek manuscript written by Gryllus, a talking pig who was once a man, which describes the many adventures that he and his companions--a junior prophetess named Sybil and a bumbling goatherd--experience while traveling to Delphi to try to prevent the universe from coming to an end.
