It's off to ancient Greece for a split-your-side funny take on the politics of junior-high popularity.
In ancient Greece lived a little girl called Medusa Jones. Medusa was a Gorgon, but apart from that, pretty normal. So she has snakes for hair instead of gorgeous blond ringlets like Cassandra. So her best friend is half horse. Is that any reason for the popular kids to be SO mean?
Medusa's sure the school camping trip is going to be a nightmare. But a rock fall puts the popular kids in peril, and Medusa's the only one who can help. Will she be a hero -- or is her monster side finally going to come out? It's Freaks versus Heroes, brought to life by Ross Collins's hilarious illustrations!
