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."

Dramatic full-color illustrations throughout by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco make this volume--a must for home, library, and classroom shelves--as stunning as it is entertaining.

                Told in Percy Jackson's funnny style,this was a great book. Athena,Artemis,Ares,the almighty Zeus... If you want to learn more about Greek gods,read this book! How did Athena get born?Why did Hermes get away with stealing Apollo's sacred cows?Why does the godess of spring live in the Underworld? All these questions are answered in Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, plus much more! I loved this book!

                  I read this book before I read the Percy Jackson series itself, and definitely finally realized why Percy Jackson was so popular! Perseus Jackson returns with his iconic slapstick humor and undertones of mocking in this specialized book, "Percy Jackson's Greek Gods." If you have yet to read the Percy Jackson series, I would one hundred percent recommend buying/reading this book before the real series. It will help you understand the mythological component of the PJO much better and give you insight into Percy's personality and his world, so you'll know if you're interested!

                      R.R expressed the greek gods well. This is a story about many various gods and goddesses telling a tale of their weak points and strong ones. Zeus, he's always first so R.R decides it's someone else's turn to become first. Including fascinating stories of the goddess of love and others.......
