Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes:
There is something about a collection of stories that screams “read aloud,” and that’s exactly what we’ve been doing with Rick Riordan’s newest book, Greek Heroes.
What makes this collection of stories so much fun? Each story is told in Percy Jackson’s voice, relating the ancient Greek experiences and culture to modern life so kids can understand and appreciate the story all the better.
We love that we can get a taste of the classic Greek stories that are written for kids. And we love that the format is perfect to share together – the stories are the perfect length and there are just the right amount of colorful, full-page illustrations.
I’ve even caught my teenage son (who usually deems himself too old for “kid” books) reading the stories on his own. He’s definitely not too old for Percy Jackson!
About Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes:
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 dincluding a maze, word search, aring 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.
Greek Heroes is available on Percy Jackson’s birthday, August 18!
