Athena: Goddess of Wisdom and War

From the moment she sprung from Zeus’s head, Athena was extraordinary. Even though some doubted her as a young goddess, Athena never backed down from a fight. Poseidon wants to be the patron god of a nearby city? Well, so does Athena! And she’s going to outwit him and found Athens. Perseus doesn’t know how to defeat Medusa? No problem! Athena can give him the knowledge (and shield) he needs to take off her head. Odysseus is lost at sea, seemingly doomed? Not anymore! Athena can get him home.

Follow the goddess of wisdom through her adventures with gods and mortals, discover the perils of crossing her, and see how she eventually learned to better understand and aid the human race. This graphic novel from the Tales of Great Goddesses series is a spunky, feminist take on the myth of Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, and courage.

Description

"With its introduction to characters, visual cues across illustrations, breathtaking splash pages, glossary, and readers guide, the book opens the door to the Trojan War, The Odyssey, and Greek mythology. Further, part of what makes the Greek gods attractive and interesting is their humanity — and that is not lost here, either. Athena is brave and wise but also jealous and meddling and vain. She makes mistakes and is far from perfect, but that makes her all the more a hero for every reader." — Kirkus Reviews
