Hades Learns To Be Fair is the fourth book in the world of Greek mythology - Taki & Toula: Time Travelers series - written by Elena Paige and illustrated by Josef Hill. When Taki and his sister are ready to go on a new adventure, the children put on their time-traveling slippers and immediately find themselves standing before Hades, ruler of the Underworld. After the children learn that they can never leave, Persephone offers the children a pomegranate to eat and comforts them, while also feeling her own sadness at being imprisoned by Hades. Taki soon starts taking photographs of Hades, revealing the magic of photography. After discovering that people see him as evil, Hades is taught the difference between being weak and being fair and allows the children to leave. Persephone is also permitted to leave with her brother, Hermes, but must return to Hades for six months of every year as a condition of her return.
Without fail, each story from the Taki & Toula: Time Travelers series teaches me something new and fun. Hades Learns To Be Fair is not only well-written and entertaining, but the illustrations are beautifully drawn, carving out a vivid imagery of the time and place each page portrays. Elena Paige truly has the knack of capturing the imaginations of her readers, while highlighting the importance of each of the Greek gods - not only by their names but also by their well-traveled stories. If only Taki and Toula's time-traveling shoes (tsarouhia) were real; it would be wonderful to be able to enter their fantasy world and see everything up close and three-dimensional. I quite liked how Hades Learns To Be Fair teaches the difference between being weak and being fair - something that too many people around the world do not seem to understand. A person can be quite strict and firm, yet also be fair at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed Hades Learns To Be Fair and recommend it to readers aged 7-12, as well as to all readers who are interested in learning about Greek mythology.
