Percy Pack: 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 daring 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.

Did you know: There's an Activity Kit for GREEK HEROES.

My Thoughts about the Book:
12 tales
Percy's humor 
Male and female hero/heroines 
Great book for mythology fans (or obviously fans of Percy)

The puppy reading about Otrera

I like many tales from mythology, but Athena always seems like such a good role model.

Great to see Percy Jackson's humorous voice finding its way into more books! I have to admit, my heart goes to Artemis and Britomartis...Girl power for the win!

I always liked Athena, but kind of am intrigued by Pandora.
