I Am Pan!

by Mordicai Gerstein

Published by Roaring Brook Press, 2016
72 pages
ISBN: 978-1-62672-035-0

Ages 7-12

Pan, the Greek god of the wild, is definitely one of the funniest and most child-friendly denizens of Mount Olympus. Everywhere he goes, there’s pandemonium (a concept that takes its name from him). The action bursts off the page in this hilarious graphic novel that completely captures the spirit of Pan. Episodic short chapters cover his birth, his childhood, how he invented panic, his love affair with the moon, his battle with Typhon, the invention of pan pipes and his marriage to Echo, the great music contest, King Midas’s ears, and the Battle of Marathon. A final chapter, “Me, Dead?” posits that Pan is still around today in the “bee-buzzing, bird-singing spring mornings” when he can’t help leaping and shouting. (Ages 7–12)  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
