(Book #6 of Heroes in Training)
Illustrated by: Craig Phillips
For Ages: 6 - 9
When a flock of angry birds threaten Zeus and his fellow Olympians, they need the help of a new friend—assuming the stranger is actually a friend!

After a horrible drought, Zeus and his fellow Olympians are determined to help restore the land as they try to figure out their current mission, to find a special shield called an aegis.

But they are suddenly swarmed by birds—thousands of killer, scary birds. And when a mysterious boy appears in the chaos, it looks like he might be more connected to the Olympians than they think. Is he friend…or foe?
