Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series

Percy Jackson had ADD and dyslexia.  He moved from school to school.  His mom was nice but his stepdad was a jerk.  All things considered he was a normal kid.  One day while he was on a field trip at a museum one of his teachers turned into a monster.  His Latin teacher threw him a magical pen (that was really a sword) and Percy fought the monster off.  He thought it was a dream until on his way to a magical camp he killed the legendary minotaur.  Did I mention his real dad turns out to be Poseidon.  

Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and The Olympian series is an exciting, action packed adventure through Greek mythology.  Many people have tried to make books similar to Harry Potter and this is one that actually succeeds but is still unique and creative in its own way.

  1. Pan of the Sauce, this book sounds cool too, especially because I love Greek mythology. Did you learn a lot about Greek mythology through this book? Again, like the Harry Potter comparison and I really like how you added that it's "unique and creative in its own way." I think it's important for books to be geniune and not copies of other books.
