The Fire Thief

This series based on classical mythology hilariously reimagines the myth of Prometheus, the Greek demigod who stole fire from the gods and gave it to the human race. To escape the gods' revenge, Prometheus travels through time to Eden City in the 18th and 19th century. There, he befriends some brave and resourceful children. In each of these novels, Terry Deary masterfully interweaves two plots, with action jumping at a whirlwind pace from Mount Olympus to Eden City. Packed with puns, wisecracks, and sarcastic footnotes, The Fire Thief turns Greek mythology into a laughing matter.
