The Picks:

Athena The Story Of A Goddess Of Wisdom And War – Amulet Books tells their version of the tales of the Goddess that never backed down from a fight. Athena, the Greek goddess, was extraordinary from the moment she sprung from Zeus’s head. She outwitted her uncle Poseidon to become the patron god of the city of Athens. She also helped the hero Perseus defeat Medusa, giving him the knowledge (and shield) to take off her head. Through her adventures with gods and mortals, discover the perils of crossing the goddess of wisdom and see how she eventually learned to better understand and aid the human race. With a positive and light-hearted tone, this book will appeal to readers interested in mythology.

Jop And Blip Wanna Know Can You Hear A Penguin Fart On Mars GN – HarperAlley introduces two robot scientists who seek the answers to some seemingly odd yet totally valid questions. Jop and Blip use their own brand of logic, critical thinking skills, and STEM knowledge to investigate the questions: Can you hear a penguin fart on Mars? What if you wanted a dragon sandwich? Why do we need two ears? Along the way, they will learn important facts about the atmosphere on Mars, the connection between dinosaurs and birds, the digestive system, the senses, sorting truth from fiction, and the way herrings communicate with farts. With Jop and Blip, no question is too silly to ask or learn from.
