Some hiccups between the notion of "games" vs. "contests" and why girls couldn't go... ( )

Summary: Siblings Annie and Jack are sent on a mission to travel back to ancient Greece through their magical treehouse in order to save an important story. When they get there, they meet Plato, who helps them get the story and takes them to the Olympic games. Since women are not allowed to do very much in ancient Greece, the author of the story has to stay anonymous and Annie has to sneak into the games. When she gets caught, a Pegasus rescues them and takes them safely back to the treehouse.

This is a great book! It was wonderful for exploring the concepts of past versus present and gender equality. It is very obviously geared towards younger elementary aged students. ( )
