Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on the all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style readers have come to expect from Percy,
(I've had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I'm going to tell you about were the original old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before. . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan's legions of devoted fans--and for anyone who needs a hero.

So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape. Polish your shield and make sure you've got arrows in your quiver. We're going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal loot from evil people.

Then, for dessert, we'll die painful tragic deaths.

Ready? Sweet. Let's do this.

        This book is great! Tells about the behind stories of greek stories. Great book totally recommend it. It is funny, adventurous, and gross (well some of it is gross).

          This book,narrated by Percy Jackson, was great. Percy tells us about several stories of Greek Heroes,from Psyche to Hercules and passing by Daedalus. I really liked it because I learned a lot and it was really interesting. I especially liked Psyche and Jason.

                I have read most of the books that Rick Riordan has wrote within the past few years and they were cool. He puts little funny things in it too.

                  Told in a new and humorous way, this book is a must read if you like Greek Myths. From the story of Perseus to the Mintour, this book contains 12 stories, in detail and Percy Jackson style. I love Greek Myths and Percy Jackson so this was the perfect combo. Would defintely recommend and I laughed like 10 + times in this book. Rated for ages 10+

                      This is a story that includes all genres, including romance, action, and tragedy. For example like Cyrene punches a lion, that involves both romance and action. Pysche ninjas a box of beauty cream, boy is that true love. From all of those romances you could head up to Orpheus and well yeah, a lot of other heroes. They are all amazing to me!
