Percy Jackson's Greek Gods


A wave of Percy Jackson fandom has swept over our house in the last month. The last time this happened, my oldest was finishing 5th grade, and the first Percy Jackson movie was hitting the theaters. He read every book, raved about the movie, but our other boys were quite young then and the fire dwindled as he grew a little older.

Always on the lookout for new audiobooks for our two younger boys, I purchased Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief last month, and it has been on auto-repeat in their bedroom ever since. I admit to having a slight ulterior motive for this move. In addition to beginning a series, insuring fresh audio material for the next few months to come, I also managed to score a signed copy of Percy Jackson's Greek Gods when it hit bookstores last month. A perfect birthday present for my middle boy's upcoming birthday; the same boy who slept with d'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths for months last year!

Percy Jackson's Greek Gods is an imposing, grand book with a fabulously illustrated cover. For a Percy Jackson lover, the language, from Percy's own perspective and with his signature sarcasm, is highly descriptive and a perfect touch to lends an air of authenticity to the Greek mythology. Told from Percy's point of view, these stories will entice many young readers who might not otherwise read Greek mythology and will bring a fresh retelling to children who enjoy hearing the tales again and again.

  7. I drop a comment when I especially enjoy a article on a blog or I have
    something to add to the conversation. It\'s triggered by the fire displayed in the article I browsed.
    And on this article -+Ishouless+-. I was actually moved enough to
    create a comment ;-) I actually do have a few questions for you if
    it\'s allright. Could it be only me or do some of these comments appear
    like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I\'d like to keep
    up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you list all
    of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile? agen slot joker7979

  8. The the next time I just read a blog, I am hoping who’s doesn't disappoint me around that one. After all, It was my solution to read, but I just thought you'd have some thing interesting to convey. All I hear is often a lot of whining about something that you could fix should you weren't too busy seeking attention. portuguese-passport
