I am Pan tells the various tales of the Greek god Pan. From his silly birth to inventing panic to fighting the monster Typhon, Pan himself tells about his life. The book talks about the origins of things like panic, the first eclipse, marathons, and even the strange noises that come from Mount Aetna in Sicily. Pan tells silly tales of how King Midas got the ears of a donkey, how he is always competing with Apollo musically, and how the rumor of Pan’s death came to be. It is overall a light-hearted addition to Greek mythology folklore.
