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.
