Beasts of Olympus: Beast Keeper by Lucy Coats

Beast KeeperBeast Keeper, book number one in the Beasts of Olympus series by Lucy Coats, is the story of a young boy named Pandemonious, or Demon as he likes to be called, and his adventures in Olympus. His father, the God Pan, has brought him to Olympus to become the keeper of the creatures who live in the Stables of the Gods. Demon has a gift of being able to talk to animals, so his father seems to think he will be the perfect fit. However, these animals are different than any other he has dealt with in the human world and he begins to wonder if he is cut out for this challenge.

The series is a great first look at the Greek gods for a younger age group. The story has pictures to support the text and is equipped with a glossary to help with the pronunciation of the names of the gods, other mythical beings, places and beasts. The book taught a perfect lesson in learning to problem solve on your own and when all else fails, know when to ask for help. It also leaves you hooked for the next adventure and makes you wonder if Demon will encounter Hercules in the future. How will he handle that challenge???
