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 about Greek Heroes and each chapter tells a different Hero. The book is funny, and describes the Heroes in modern days. Some characters might not be a true hero (because they did a bad thing), but a God/Goddess fell in love with them and they were made immortal. My favourite chapter was Psyce and the Box of Beauty Cream. It is a love story between Eros and Psyce. If you like this book, you will like the Percy Jackson Series.

                  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.
