9780141355207: Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods

"If you like horror shows, blood baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read on...Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? In this whirlwind tour of Greek mythology, Percy Jackson gives his personal take on the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece - and reveals the truth about how they came to rule the world. "Explosive". (Big Issue). "Action-packed". (Telegraph). Rick Riordan is an award-winning mystery writer. He lives in Boston with his wife and two sons. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, Rick's first novel featuring the heroic young demigod, was the overall winner of the Red House Children's Book Award in 2006 and is now a blockbuster film franchise, starring Logan Lerman.

Product Description:

Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? So begins Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic to the classics. He gives readers his personal take on the ancients, from Apollo to Zeus, and doesn't 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-colour illustrations by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco make this volume a must for any shelf - as stunning as it is entertaining.

Book Description Puffin. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Book Condition: New. Who could tell the true stories of the gods and goddesses of Olympus better than modern-day demigod Percy Jackson? This unusual mythology guide for readers 9 and up (the British edition of Percy Jackson's Greek Gods) offers Percy's own take on the Greek gods that made such a mess of things in both the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus series. Want to know how Zeus came to be top god? How many times Kronos ate one of his own kids? How Athena literally burst out of another god's head? Percy gives his hilariously sarcastic perspective on the gods' feuds, fights, and love affairs. "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." This edition includes the bonus short story "The Son of Sobek," in which Percy Jackson meets young Egyptian magician Carter Kane. 464. Bookseller Inventory # 62163

Book Description Penguin Books, 2014. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Percy Jackson didn?t originally like being the son of Poseidon. He warmed up to the idea later, given its perks. However, he came to realize that the gods are a strange bunch, their stories are usually told by god-fearing mortal bards who don?t really know them that well. In this book, Percy tells the story of the gods from his point of view. Hilariously critical of their actions and their temperaments, Percy reveals how Zeus became the head honcho, and how Kronos ate one of his own kids. He also reveals how Athena burst out of another god?s head, quite literally. In plain monochrome, Percy takes readers back into the Homeric world we all know, but he shows us that no one knows it like the son of a god. Printed Pages: 464. Bookseller Inventory # 79129
