The Little boy who lived down the drain / Carolyn Huizinga Mills ; Brooke Kerrigan.

The Little boy who lived down the drain /  Carolyn Huizinga Mills ; Brooke Kerrigan.
Sally loved taking baths. It wasn't because the water was full of bubbles ... or because she had the bathroom all to herself ... and it was not because she always came out squeaky clean ... Sally loved taking baths because it was the only time she could talk to the little boy who lived down the drain. Sally found out about him when her mother sang to Sally's baby brother about Baa Baa Black Sheep and his three bags of wool ... one of which went to the little boy who lived down the drain. And thus a friendship was born. Every bath that Sally took was devoted to finding more out about her new friend.--Amazon.com.

Athena points out that this Dion guy is the right age, and he's definitely not acting like a regular kid. Finally, Dion and the Goat Guys take a break, and Zeus and the other Olympians approach him. Zeus informs him that he and the others are Olympians, and they think Dion might be one too. Dion (short for Dionysus, he tells them) starts to brag that he wouldn't be surprised, because he has awesome talents and magic powers. Before the Olympians can ask him about his powers, some of the crowd members start to throng the Olympians. Are they really Olympians? Are they really going to defeat King Cronus? Dion looks kind of peeved about this, and the next thing the Olympians know, they are in a field somewhere, puzzled and not sure what happened. What kind of magical powers does this Dion kid actually have? And will he be more of a help--or a pain--in their ultimate quest to defeat King Cronus once and for all? -- amazon.com
