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.
This book gives so much knowledge and insight about Greek Gods in Ancient Greek. How dangerous and powerful they considered in that time, and how easy for them to punish, kill, or turn anyone into animals or plants. There are many other events and humans related to the Gods in the Greek mythology, for example Pygmalion. And the illustrations! They are really pretty seriously! But if you want to buy this book, I recommend you to buy the hardcover one because it has more pictures.
Don’t read this book if you haven’t read PJO/HOO because it contains mild spoilers. If you want to know more about Greek mythology in an easy and funny way, this book is perfect for you. Really can’t wait for Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes!
