Review By: Graham

This is the first book in the Percy Jackson series

I love books by Rick Riordan and this is by far one of his best books. In most all of his books there are Greek, Roman, and Egyptian Mythical Gods and Goddesses.

This would be a good book for a 3rd or 4th grader to read.


These are the Is It’s and Does It’s of the book (ranked from 1-5):

Is It Scary?  3 – not too bad, but there are some freaky parts

Is It Sad?  2 – not really

Does it have lots of Adventure?  5 – one of its strengths

Does it have a Good Moral?  2 – kind of

Does it have Mean Characters?  5 – yes

Does it have a Complicated Story?   3 – there are some complicated parts, but its pretty easy to read overall.
