Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom (Heroes in Training) by Joan Holub, Leveled Books O-P
Ten-year-old Zeus knows very little about his parents, and he has never been far from the cave where he grew up. Every year he gets hit by lightning, and survives it. Every time it happens he hears a voice saying "You are the one." When Zeus is kidnapped by giants, he pulls a lightning bolt from a stone to defend himself, and his true powers begin to reveal themselves. He goes on a quest to free the other Olympians from Cronus, and finds that they are also kids. A fun, action-filled retelling of a story from Greek mythology, and the beginning of a great series about the Greek heroes.
