Chicken House acquires Who Let the Gods Out? by Mary Evans
We're very excited to share the news that we'll be publishing Mary Evans' Who Let the Gods Out in spring 2017!
A new, exciting and brilliantly British adventure – perfect for Percy Jackson fans – Who Let the Gods Out? is the first in a series centred on the Olympian gods.
Elliot’s mum is ill and his home is under threat, but a shooting star crashes to earth and changes his life forever. The star is Virgo – a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. But the pair accidentally release Thanatos, a wicked death daemon imprisoned beneath Stonehenge, and must then turn to the old Olympian gods for help. After centuries of cushy retirement on earth, are Zeus and his crew up to the task of saving the world – and solving Elliot’s problems too?
Hilarious yet heartfelt, Who Let the Gods Out? is a hugely entertaining adventurous romp with a heart, written by exciting new talent Mary Evans. Mary's already well-versed with the children's literature world, having toured lots of schools and festivals with Story Stew, a creative writing programme for children.
