Zeus the Mighty: The Quest for the Golden Fleas – {Giveaway Ends: 12/31} #zeusthemighty

Are you looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? National Geographic Kids Books has released a brand new series that is perfect for kids who love greek mythology, hamsters and a laugh-out-loud, comical adventure.

Suggested for children ages 8-12, Zeus the Mighty: The Quest for the Golden Fleas by Crispin Boyer takes place at the Mount Olympus Pet Center in Athens … (Georgia!), where Zeus the Mighty (hamster!) rules over a crew of cute, courageous critters. The aptly names characters believe that they are Greek gods and goddesses. During the day, Zeus the Mighty and his friends are innocuous, spending their time running on exercise wheels and taking catnaps. However, nighttime is when the adventures happen. The fearless furry friends take on legendary mythological quests!

Your child will laugh, cheer, and learn with this adorable and quirky cast of characters. The first adventure in the series, Zeus the Mighty: The Quest for the Golden Fleas, is a reimagining of the tale of the Golden Fleece. Click here to view the fantastic book trailer. 

We love this story and how it sparks interest in learning with an exciting and funny story. Children can make connections to the real world with the map and learn about greek mythology with short bios of each character at the end of the book.

More Zeus Fun!

National Geographic Kids has set up an amazing website where your child can meet the characters, play games, read an excerpt from the book, and learn more about Greek artifacts at
