Can you imagine if Mount Olympus had WiFi and Apollo and Athena had smartphones? If you think that would be fun, you will love GREEK GODS #squadgoals, the new book by Courtney Carbone that went on sale this week. In this book, you will find the classic myths you know and love with a new life in irreverent and hilarious texts and posts!
If you have trouble telling Perseus from Theseus (#Greek2Me) or have ever wondered about Oedipus’s tragic dating profile or why Medusa’s Instagram never got traction—this satirical book of Greek myths retold for the Internet Age is for you! What a great way to make these ancient myths more appealing and relevant!
This book is the perfect gift for any ready-young or old-with a sense of humor. They are sure to get a kick out of seeing D’Aulaires’ and Homer’s Greek myths told through characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it.
