Way too snarky . . . generally relied on pop culture for its humor. Not a great choice for a kid who loves him some straight up mythology. ( )

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.
