Percy Jackson: half boy, half god, all hero.

Twelve-year-old Percy was just a normal kid: going to school, skateboarding, playing basketball. The usual. Until one day he vaporized his maths teacher. That's when he discovered he was the son of a Greek god, a half-blood. When Zeus thinks Percy’s stolen his lightning bolt, things heat up, and the result is an action-packed ride, worthy of legend.

Recommended for ages 9+. 

Don't miss the latest in the series, Percy Jackson and the Chalice of the Gods.
