This book tells the story of Hades, Persephone and Demeter from Greek mythology. I really liked the part where Kore found herself maturing. It seemed like Kore was growing up but she still loved her mother. I liked that part the best because the pictures were great and the plot was unexpected.
This book is a good read because it has an interesting format. It is an easy read with tons of facts about ancient Greek mythology. This comic book is entertaining with an unexpected twist to the plot. I would recommend this book for readers over 12. I thought it was better than most books and would appeal to many teens.

This book is a really cute and funny story. It is about a dog who tells about life from a dog's point of view and his life gets really interesting when his family adopts a cat. He thinks his life is getting really bad so he tries to tell his people, but they misunderstand him because all they hear is a bark. Will Spunky learn to be friends with the cat or remain enemies? You will have to read it to find out.
I think this book is a good book for all ages and a lot of people should read it.

I liked this book. It was funny and had me laughing out loud multiple times. But it was short. I thought that the book would have been all the better if he had added more. The ending was just kind of a sum up of events. But other than that I did enjoy this book very much and would recommend it to my friends. The book is definitely for a teen audience, probably 14 and older.
