    Default sci-fi novel with uke wielding heroes

    Here are some pics of my home made ukes - they seem to be taking over. Although, not at least, taking over the world.
    However, in the comic sci-fi novel RETURN OF THE YGGDRASIL the uke wielding heroes help save the world. If you enjoy sci-fi, social satire, or ukes you might love it!

    Science fiction using ukulele sounds funny at least. Who do the characters fight with? With aliens armed with accordions? There is something of Terry Pratchett in this. I will definitely read your book, it sounds too interesting.

    Rick Riordan has done many Young Adult books using mythology as the background - the most popular the Percy Jackson series (Lightning Thief) which used Greek Mythology. There are also Norse, Roman, an Egyptian series.

    In one of the more recent, the Greek god Apollo is punished by Zeus, and sent to Earth as an acne-faced adolescent, who must fulfill a quest to save the Oracles - and learn humility - before he can regain his godhood.

    As the Greek god of music, Apollo used a lyre. However, since none is available for an adolescent male on Earth, he uses a ukulele.

    The series is fun mind-candy. And his ukulele playing improves.
