Kristin O’Donnell Tubb, the award-winning author of A Dog Like Daisy, delivers another heartwarming must-read middle grade novel for dog lovers. Equal parts funny and poignant, this book from the point of view of the service dog, Zeus, is perfect for fans of Max and A Dog Called Homeless. Zeus comes from a long line of heroic dogs, and he dreams of glory as a K9 commander. But he receives a much more dangerous assignment—middle school! And as all good service dogs know, the only way to get through hostile territory is by being invisible. Zeus’s new human, Madden, is diabetic, and he wants to be invisible, too. That’s hard to do with a huge German Shepherd at his side to alert him when his blood sugar drops. And it’s even harder because Madden makes this noise called music that draws attention. Zeus’s mission becomes clear: he must destroy music. While Zeus’s training prepared him for his most important job—keeping Madden safe—he discovers the human world is complicated. As Madden dreams of winning the state band competition and tries to reconnect with his mom, the lieutenant, Zeus must learn that, sometimes, you need to stand out to fulfill your duty.

Demon's life on Mount Olympus has never been busier in the final book in the Beast of Olympus series. Demon is now an Apprentice Healer to Chiron the Centaur God as well as Official Beastkeeper to the rest of the gods. Chiron's a bit distracted by looking after a new baby, Ascelpius - but Demon's not too keen on adding babysitting duties too. He has enough poo to be cleaning up every day, thank you very much! Horrible Heracles is back to his old beast-torturing tricks, and there's another awful "hero" on the scene, Beastly Bellerophon, who's shoved burning lead down the Chimera's throat and flown poor Pegasus nearly to death. Pan is demanding Demon come down to earth to deal with the Mares of Diomedes, but up on Olympus the butterfly-winged goddess Psyche is about to blackmail Demon into doing something VERY dangerous. She needs Demon to "borrow" Zeus's Eagle, his prized bird of prey, to complete the task she's been set by Aphrodite. Eagle is the only one who can soothe the three-tongued serpent who guards the spring of eternal youth at the source of the River Styx - and Psyche needs 'just a little jug' of water from it to erase Aphrodite's (non-existent) wrinkles and win the chance of marrying her son, Eros. Will the Eagle be willing to help Demon out? Or will he turn the young Beastkeeper over to his royal master? The threat of being sizzled by a thunderbolt has never been more real . . .

Eros is a poodle puppy, born in rural New Jersey. He is a prodigy when it comes to questions, although his prodigiousness ends when it comes to answers—for now. As just a puppy, there is much to learn before Eros can enter the wild, a fascinating and dangerous place for dogs and humans alike. He hones his skills for the sole purpose of survival. It takes time for young Eros to realize that life is about much more than survival; life is about finding happiness. However, to find happiness, it is imperative that Eros grows stronger, fights better, and finds time to play. There will be difficulties, of course, but the drive to survive inspires endurance in the young pup as he seeks purpose and love. When Eros believes happiness is out there waiting, it is! He discovers that finding happiness is not hard if he keeps his eyes open. In this playful allegory, there is much to learn from a poodle puppy, but the wisest thing Eros ever learned: “The purpose of life is to find happiness, and you can only discover happiness through the knowledge that you find.”

The figure of the dog is a paradox. As in so many cultures, past and present, the dog in ancient Greece was seen as the animal closest to humans, even as it elicited from them the most negative representations. Still a loaded term today, the word bitch not only signified shamelessness and a lack of self-control but was also exclusively figured as female. Woman and dogs in the Greek imagination were intimately intertwined, and in this careful, engaging analysis, Cristiana Franco explores the ancients' complex relationship with both. By analyzing the relationship between humans and dogs as depicted in a vast array of myths, proverbs, spontaneous metaphors, and comic jokes, Franco in particular shows how the symbolic overlap between dog and woman provided the conceptual tools to maintain feminine subordination. Intended for general readers as well as scholars, Shameless extends the boundaries of classics and anthropology, forming a model of the sensitive work that can be done to illuminate how deeply animals are imbricated in human history. The English translation has been revised and expanded from the original Italian edition, and it includes a new methodological appendix by the author that points the way toward future work in the emerging field of human-animal studies.

After the death of her mother and the end of a post-divorce relationship leave her heartbroken, novelist Amanda Brookfield finds her once secure world imploding. As despair closes in, she talks of getting a puppy to revive her optimistic spirit. Amanda is advised that her lifestyle will not suit becoming a dog-owner but she can't resist Mabel, a beautiful golden doodle puppy. Arming herself with an arsenal of equipment, Amanda learns that there are no short-cuts to training and caring for a dog. Through battling daily challenges and constantly regrouping, Amanda realises she is starting to come to terms with her bereavement and the prospect of facing the rest of her life alone. For the Love of a Dog tells the bigger, more poignant story about the labour of emotional recovery after the trauma of loss. Mabel shines like a light throughout, the unwitting architect of rebuilding self-belief. Mabel's own journey is equally captivating: as she blossoms into a mischievous, endearing head-turner of a companion – as affectionate as she is glorious.

We drive off in our cars, catch trains, and fly to the other side of the world. But how did we and why did we first became mobile? This is a history of the extraordinary range of animals that helped drag Mankind out of pre-history and into his now extremely mobile present. We depended on just six animals to help us hunt, to carry us and drag our loads. Without dogs, horses, oxen, camels, elephants and reindeer, civilization would have taken a very much longer time arriving. But they provided much more than just transport and affected our lives in so many ways... from milk to magic, from meat to trading and from games to war.

Oaths were ubiquitous rituals in ancient Athenian legal, commercial, civic and international spheres. Their importance is reflected by the fact that much of surviving Greek drama features a formal oath sworn before the audience. This is the first comprehensive study of that phenomenon. The book explores how the oath can mark or structure a dramatic plot, at times compelling characters like Euripides' Hippolytus to act contrary to their best interests. It demonstrates how dramatic oaths resonate with oath rituals familiar to the Athenian audiences. Aristophanes' Lysistrata and her accomplices, for example, swear an oath that blends protocols of international treaties with priestesses' vows of sexual abstinence. By employing the principles of speech act theory, this book examines how the performative power of the dramatic oath can mirror the status quo, but also disturb categories of gender, social status and civic identity in ways that redistribute and confound social authority.

After pulling a magical thunderbolt from a stone, ten-year-old Zeus goes on the adventure of a lifetime in this thrilling start to a brand-new series!

But their rule is about to be put to the test as a group of young Olympians discover their powers and prepare to righteously rule the universe.... Ten-year-old Zeus is mystified (and super-annoyed) by the fact that he keeps getting hit by lightening. Every. Single. Year. He also longs for adventure, as he has never been far from the cave where he grew up. Zeus gets his wish—and a lot more than he bargained for—when he is kidnapped by dangerous, giant Titans! In self-defense, Zeus grabs the first thing he sees—an actual thunderbolt he pulls from a stone that is covered in mysterious markings. Zeus is the only one who can decipher the markings, and sets off on a quest to rescue his fellow Olympians from the evil Cronus. Armed with his trusty thunderbolt (named Bolt, of course), Zeus is on an adventure of a lifetime—and a journey to fulfill his destiny as King of the Gods.
