As you know, my girls and I have loved the Percy Jackson series of books in the past, and with that being said we have been excited about the new release of the new book, Greek Heroes, that runs along side the series that was released on the 18th.
Not only has the excitement of this book coming out encourage my girls and I to start reading the Percy Jackson Books but this also tied into our family taking part in the #ReadRiordan program this summer.
About the Book
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.
My Take on the Book
This was a great book that really let you get to know some of the best known Greek stories. The way in which they were told was unique and the images were beautiful. The one thing that I was not expecting was how large the book was as it is a 9X12 book and really is a book that my daughters loved reading with me. I learned a ton as it came to the myths that I thought I knew from the past. Best of all, through the way that this is written, you are being taught in a fun, interactive way that will feel fun and before you know it you will be through the book!
So if you love mythology or the Percy Jackson series, Don’t forget to pre-order Percy Jackson’s GREEK HEROES, the companion to the national best seller Percy Jackson’s GREEK GODS available on Percy Jackson’s birthday, August 18, 2015.
- a copy of GREEK HEROES
