KeeKee is an adventurous calico cat who explores the world, travelling to new places in her hot air balloon. This is the next in a series of books telling of her adventures and this time, as the title suggests, she is visiting Athens in Greece. The story is written with greeting in Greek and English. KeeKee  explores the major sites, including the Parthenon and Olympic stadium, eats Greek food, learns about architectural styles and visits the island of Santorini. There are a pronunciation guides and glossary at the end of the book.  KeeKee is a brilliant main character through whom children will enjoy being introduced to Greece and its history. I can certainly imagine other teachers welcoming this book as a fantastic way in which to introduce work about Greece to their pupils!
