Description
This is the first book in Rick Riordan's fast-moving, funny series for readers 9 and up—the inspiration for the new motion picture starring Uma Thurman, Catherine Keener, Pierce Brosnan, and young Logan Lerman—in which the gods and monsters of classical Greek myth are alive and well and still battling over ancient grievances in the modern world. And they're still begetting half-human children. Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. But when Percy's mom finds out his teacher turned into a monster before his eyes, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods, where he learns that his father is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his new friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest to the gates of the Underworld (in a studio in Hollywood) to prevent a war between the gods.
