Mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson's textbooks and into his life. Series creator Rick Riordan joins forces with some of the biggest names in the comic book industry to tell the story of a boy who must unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

    I loved this book because it sometimes says something unexpected about the characters. I kept on reading it because it was enthusiastic, and it told me about a different culture.

        This was a pretty good version of Percy Jackson and the lightning thief. Percy Jackson is the son of Greek God Poseidon. Percy discovers he is a demi-god, his best friend is a satyr and his teacher is actually the teacher of Camp Half-Blood a safe place for all the demi-gods. It missed a few big parts in my opinion from the actual book but overall was funny, action packed and full of all things demi-god! Join in on reading this epic quest. Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews

            This graphic novel version of the Lightning Thief wasn't as good as the book because they missed out some of the parts in the book. The pictures were okay, but Percy just didn't look like the description. Not bad, but I would rather read the original version.

              Awesome book. Can't wait to watch the movie! This book is about a boy named Percy who finds out that he is a demigod and son of Poseidon. With the help of Annabeth and Grover the satyr, will he find the missing lightning bolt, that belongs to Zeus? If not, there will be war. Awesome book!
