Description



About the Book



Percy Jackson, a modern-day demigod, tells the stories of all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes.



Book Synopsis



From New York Times best-selling author, Rick Riordan, comes the companion to PERCY JACKSON'S GREEK GODS, now in paperback.
The son of Poseidon returns to give readers his unique and unforgettable insight into twelve larger-than-life personalities from the classic Greek stories.
Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on the all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes.
Told in the funny, irreverent style readers have come to expect from Percy, (I've had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I'm going to tell you about were the original old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before. . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan's legions of devoted fans--and for anyone who needs a hero.
So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape. Polish your shield and make sure you've got arrows in your quiver. We're going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal loot from evil people.

Then, for dessert, we'll die painful tragic deaths.

Ready? Sweet. Let's do this.



Review Quotes



PRAISE FOR PERCY JACKSON'S GREEK HEROES

Percy Jackson, the narrator of Riordan's novels, has returned to retell traditional Greek myths. Written from Percy's first-person point of view, the book tells a dozen stories, including the original Perseus and the Gorgons, Eros and Psyche, and Atalanta. Complemented by Rocco's elegant paintings, and printed on the thick smooth paper one expects in an art reference, this book is a unique combination: classical Greek myth reference and a very 21st-century retelling. . .it is a joy to read or read aloud, with enough humor to entice and entertain adults, reluctant readers, and mythology fans, as well as fans of Riordan's earlier books. If you can, buy two: one for reference and one to circulate.--VOYA
