Greek Mythology is just the greatest thing, isn't it? :) My book is about Hawaiian Mythology, maybe you would like to check it out?  In Search of Calamus is a great title, it is perfect in the way it really conveys what the book is about rather than just something random.

That was nice! This story sounds like it would make a good fable or fairytale, the way the prince meets the mythical creatures along the way, saves his father, and makes an unlikely friend in the end. If you would check out the first chapter of my story, Metalligirl, and leave a comment, I'd appreciate it- you do a good job! Keep writing! :)
