Snappy re-telling of Hermes myths, really enjoyable for Greek myth fans

Some violence and gruesome bits are pretty much unavoidable with the Greek myths -- but they're not wallowed in or dwelt on in this version. Indeed, Hermes vows never to kill again, and there's an overall anti-war message. Similarly, the scene with goddesses undressing for Paris to judge their beauty was handled with some restraint. I felt that Hermes keeping secret from Calypso that he had erased her memory of Oddyseus was questionable and needed discussion with a kid. It's quite funny. Charming -- a treat for those with an interest in Greek myths. Recommended for 8+ (or a little older for those without prior exposure to the Greek myths).
