Apollo’s father has gone missing and the 14-year-old is trying to find answers – to who they are, who they will become, but mostly what happened to their Mythology professor father? Suddenly Apollo is swept away on the adventure of a lifetime where all things become clear. OK – to be honest, things get really confusing for a while, I mean there’s the Underworld, different gods appearing, a cyclops, but ultimately Apollo finds the path forward. From the writing team that brought you the rollicking adventure Robin Hood comes another instant classic filled with mischief, mayhem, fighting, fury and just pure fun. For families with young people ages 9 – 18+
