  • Bookmacius loved the attention she got when telling her stories. The more wild her stories were, the better reactions she would get from the people of Greece.
  • Rumor had spread to Mount Olympus that Bookmacius was telling some wild stories and that some of them included Gods and Goddesses! This angered the Gods and they vowed to get to the bottom of things.
  • Bookmacius knew it was a bad idea to talk about the Gods the way she had been, but she let her love of attention get the best of her. One day she told the wrong story about the wrong God at the wrong time...
  • And then Apollo tripped and fell, embarrassing himself in front of all the Gods!
  • Should we tell her Apollo is standing right behind her?
