Summary
Oh My Gods! , the first in a new middle grade graphic novel series, reads as if Raina Telgemeier and Rick Riordan teamed up to write a comic, and offers a fresh and funny spin on Greek mythology. When an average girl moves to Mt. Olympus, she discovers her new classmates are gods and mythological creatures are actually real--as if junior high isn't hard enough!



Karen is just an average thirteen-year-old from New Jersey who loves to play video games with her friends and watch movies with her mom. But when she moves to Greece to live with her eccentric, mysterious father, Zed, suddenly everything she thought about herself--about life--is up in the air.



Starting a new school can be difficult, but starting school at Mt. Olympus Junior High, where students are gods and goddesses, just might take the cake. Especially when fellow classmates start getting turned to stone. Greek mythology . . . a little less myth, a little more eek! And if Karen's classmates are immortal beings, who does that make her?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this adorable father-daughter-bonding story with a twist, Karen's mom sends her to live with her dad for a while in Mt. Olympus. The Mt. Olympus. At first, Karen thinks everyone is super dedicated to the arts, but when people start mysteriously turning into stone, she has to accept that what she considered myth is actually real, and together with her new friends, she sets out to solve the mystery. Simple but effective cartoon drawings with heavy lines and vibrant colors convey the tale. The Olympians at Karen's new school include recognizable names like Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, Apollo, and Hermes, and their return to a childlike state is explained in a way that completely befits the ancient gods: they were bored with immortality. Moon's detailed background illustrations showcase the Greek architecture and other signals that Karen is definitely not in Kansas anymore. A fun romp with minimal drama and plenty of heart makes this a refreshing read, and a teaser ending indicates more to come."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A breezy tone and well-placed gags keep things moving in Cooke's series opener, which twines well-trod school travails with Greek mythology. When middle schooler Karen is uprooted from life with her mom in New Jersey and sent to stay with her dad, Zed, on Mount Olympus, she does not expect it to be the mythical Mount Olympus, nor does she anticipate that her junior high school will be filled with youthful incarnations of ancient Greek deities. In addition to navigating a new social scene, a class load that covers ancient history and archery, and the knowledge that she may be a demigoddess, Karen must also figure out why students are suddenly getting turned to stone--a plot point that covers familiar ground for those who know the tales. Instantly inviting art with strong lines and a colorful palette by Fitzpatrick and Moon quickly situates the reader, while the light plot introduces the pantheon-based cast--which balances expected character traits (bookish Athena, sporty Artemis) with clever updates (Zeus as an enthusiastic father)--while setting up the next installment. Ages 8--12. Agent: Maria Vicente, P.S. Literary Agency. (Jan.)"
