What is Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes about?
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.
Why am I waiting for Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes?
Come on, guys! It’s Percy Jackson! Is there any other explanation needed?
Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods was hilarious and wonderful and had such beautiful artwork. I’ve missed Percy’s sassy narration and this is great because it’s pretty much Percy unfiltered. It’s great to watch Percy tell the stories and put his own spin on them.
Are you waiting for Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes, too? Are you obsessed with Percy Jackson like I am? What are you waiting for?
