Ten-year-old Zeus is on the run. For some reason King Cronus’ half giants are also on the hunt for Zeus. Meanwhile five equally young Olympian child-gods, who were swallowed by King Cronus, sit trapped in his belly, as a sailing object shoots down his throat to join them. When they realize the strange object is NOT another young Olympian, Hades comes up with a clever plan for escape by writing, “Help us! We are in Cronus?” on the shooting stone. They propel the stone inscribed message out of Cronus’ mouth with a crude slingshot. Will young Zeus discover the message, before being eaten by the hungry half giants or captured by King Cronus?  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award Program, 2017)
