About the Author:

Rick Riordan is an award-winning writer of adult mysteries. For fifteen years he taught at middle schools in the San Francisco Bay area and in Texas. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, Rick's first novel featuring the heroic young demi-god, was the overall winner of the Red House Children's Book Award in 2006.

From AudioFile:

Speedy introductions of familiar and new characters and previous plot summaries may briefly confuse a new listener, but fans will savor them. It's not long before Percy Jackson, half-god son of Poseidon and a mortal mom, learns of his fourth mission: searching the Labyrinth for a way to stop Kronos's plan to unite the evil forces of the underworld. Jesse Bernstein is on target whether he's narrating blow-by-blow accounts of Percy's sword fights or inventing cameos for various other characters: Hephaestus, who repairs a Toyota; an aged Daedalus; and Grover, Percy's slow-witted sidekick. Bernstein is just as skillful at wringing humor from the witty dialogue and from the contrasts between the modern and ancient worlds. In Percy's world a half-god can summon the dead with McDonald's Happy Meals. S.W. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
