In Mount Olympus Basketball, the gods and goddesses play against a human basketball team. Problems occur, however, when the gods become upset and lose their tempers. Hera gets so mad at the referee for his call that she turns him into a bull. Then Hades, god of the Underworld, gets the ball. He opens up a hole under the basket and guess which team falls in? This laugh out loud tale is written in the style of a live TV sportscaster’s broadcast. If you enjoy Greek myths or just want a hilarious sports story, tune in!  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2004-2005)
