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.

        Always in trouble, the life of a kid named Percy Jackson gets a lot harder when he finds out he is the son of the god of water. At a camp for the children of gods, he learns to control his water powers and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime. he must prevent a fight between the gods from going into a terrible war and rescue his mom from Hades, god of death. I recommend this book to 7 year olds and up. A good new year resolution for Annabeth is to be more trusting. A good resolution for Grover is to stop eating tin cans. One for Percy’s mom is to be less overprotective.

              the book is really fun you guys should try it it's about a boy who finds out that he is a half-blood and he has to go through a lot to be save. And remember being a half-blood is really dangers so you have to be really careful. And Percy is a troubled kid he has been kicked out a lot of schools. And there is a secret that Percy's mom is not telling him. I really think that this book is a really fun book and you guys should read the books I really hope that you choose to read the lightning thief

                Percy Jackson is half-blooded. I was just a normal kid who does the same thing other kids do. Unusually, he accidentally vaporized his math teacher. That's when things really go wrong. Most of the days he fights monsters with his friends and his tries to stay alive. One day, Zeus's lighting bolt was stolen, and he thinks Percy stoled it, and he has a bad idea to start the war. Will Percy and his friends find the bolt before the Gods erupt?
