Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2015 – The demigod son of Poseidon offers his take on 12 figures from Greek myth in this irreverent and informative follow-up to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods (2014). Jokey contemporary references appear in quick succession ("We know you have a lot of options when choosing a directional wind, and we appreciate your business," Zephyrus, god of the west wind, tells Psyche); Rocco takes a comparatively old-school approach with his moody portraits of Hercules, Atalanta, and others. Percy's existing fans and newcomers will be equally delighted. It's worth it just to watch Riordan/Percy squirm through the myths' ickier details, such as Pasipha 's seduction of a bull: "This is a good time for all of us to put down the book again, run around in circles screaming, Ewww!' and wash our eyes out with Visine." Ages 8 12.
