The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2015 - August 2015 Book of the Month The fabulous Percy Jackson himself takes the reader back, to roughly 4000 years ago and tells the stories of twelve Greek Heroes. This isn't about Percy, however his unique voice shines through as he tells the tales in his own audacious way. This is funny and witty and mixes modern day with ancient times in a way that shouldn't work, but oh how it does, brilliantly. The tales include Jason and the Golden Fleece, Hercules and his tasks and Otrera’s Amazons (they don't all end happily). Percy helpfully tells you how to pronounce some of the more difficult names and gives his own sage advice along the way. By the end of ‘Percy Jackson and the Greek Heroes’, after the chuckles and cackles have stopped, it’s worth celebrating Rick Riordan for the magician wordsmith, and cloaked ninja of an educator that he truly is. ~ Liz Robinson
