Hermes, Prince of Thieves and son of Zeus, relates why the seasonal change, the history of the Trojan War, his friendship with Pegasus, and many more adventures. Hermes-also known as Mercury, Wayfinder, and Prince of Thieves-has many talents. Wearing his famed winged sandals, he does the bidding of his father Zeus, leads the dead down to Hades, and practices his favorite arts of trickery and theft. He also sees the future, travels invisibly, loves jokes, and abhors violence. And he's an entertaining and ideal narrator on a fast-paced journey through ancient Greek mythology-from Medusa's cave to Trojan War battlefields to the mysterious Underworld. Stephanie Spinner brings the famous messenger-and the best-known gods and mortals of mythology-to life with high action and spare, powerful prose.

Okay, short, easy read, and very simple. This has a few short stories in the whole book, about some things Hermes has done.
