||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
