The Lightning Thief & The Sea of Monsters

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is one of those books I have been intending to read for months. It never remains on the shelf very long before being checked out and now with the Sea Monsters enjoying as much popularity, I finally decided to make the time to read it when it came across the desk
last week. It is indeed a fantastic read...filled with characters from Greek mythology, magical legends and monsters, mysterious schools and training grounds, and the everyday problems one encounters when navigating their way through life as a twelve year old. It is the story of Perseus Jackson, the son of (unbeknownst to him) Poseidon and a mortal woman who discovering his heritage takes readers on a fantastic quest from Yancy Academy for Troubled Youth through the Underworld and through many places in between. Don't miss this one. - Morrigan

  1. The cliffhanger at the end of book 2 has the kids at my library drooling for book 3 in this series (me too for that matter). I hear from other staff the audiobook versions are good listens to recommend.
