Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief is a great book. First, at Yancy academy, they go on a field trip. That is where Percy first learns that Mrs. Dodds is not a teacher but a Fury, Kindly One, whatever you want to call it. As the story goes on, Percy meets more monsters, dealing with each of them hilariously. My favorite part was when Percy deceived Procrustes(Crusty). Altogether, it was a great book.
