Greek gods information
- Expected publication: August 2014
"Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider's view with plenty of 'tude in this illustrated collection.
So begins Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic--and sarcastic asides--to the classics. He explains how the world was created, then gives readers his personal take on a who's who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. Percy does not 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-color illustrations throughout by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco make this volume--a must for home, library, and classroom shelves--as stunning as it is entertaining. "- Rick Riordan's Blog
Yes, Finnaly! This is a great idea that I've been hoping Rick Riordan would do. Though I wonder how educational this is going to be. It would be awesome if Rick made a fun-to-read, yet educational booklet that could be used in schools. (In mythology units) Let's hope this is it!
