Hilarious Greek Gods

The Fire Thief by Terry Dreary

The Fire Thief is a middle grades read, a hilarious, storytelling voice. The book has elements of mystery, the drama of Greek gods, and self-referential writer jokes. The main characters are Prometheus, Zeus, and an orphan boy in Victorian England named Jim.  
The story skips back and forth between the world of Olympus, Zeus and Prometheus as characters. Jim and his adoptive uncle are actors using a front to rob dumb rich people in Eden City. The story moves at a quick clip, and you’ll keep reading for the laughs and to find out what will happen.

Song to Read By: "One of Us" Glee cast version.
