Percy Jackson

Young readers » Series » Percy Jackson

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson learns that the gods of Olympus are alive and well in the 21st century. Join him as he meets a who's who of characters from ancient Greek mythology on his many adventures.

Percy Jackson was just a normal kid: going to school, skateboarding, playing basketball. The usual. Until one day he vaporized his maths teacher. Then 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 9–13. Find Percy Jackson in your local bookstore.

This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt – and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood. If you’re reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is: close this book right now.
