A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods and I was like Can we do this anonymously Because I don t need the Olympians mad at me again But if it helps you to know your Greek gods and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week So begins Percy Jackson s Greek Gods in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic and sarcastic asides to the classics He explains how the world was created then gives readers his personal take on a who s who of ancients from Apollo to Zeus Percy does not hold back If you like horror shows blood baths lying stealing backstabbing and cannibalism then read on because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that This novel sized paperback complete with an insert of full color illustrations by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco is portable and friendly and the ideal way to introduce young readers to the classic stories Praise for Percy Jackson s Greek Gods Percy s gift which is no great secret is to breathe new life into the gods Closest attention is paid to the Olympians but Riordan has a sure touch when it comes to fitting much into a small space as does Rocco s artwork which smokes and writhes on the page as if hit by lightning The inevitable go to for Percy s legions of fans who want the stories behind his stories Kirkus Reviews The age old stories are endlessly strong resonant and surprising while the telling here is fresh irreverent and amusing Percy s voice John Rocco illustrates the myths with drama verve and clarity A must have addition to the Percy Jackson canon Booklist Online Combining the sarcasm and wit of Percy Jackson with the original Greek myths is a great way to hook tweens and teens on the stories without boring them The beautiful illustrations by John Rocco enhance each story VOYA
