Staff Reviews


When I was 11, I'd've said these were the Greatest Books Ever. As a post-6th-grader, however, I can more modestly attest that Percy's adventures swept me away. Riordan's accomplished world-building & plotting make this a great adventure story, with enough humor & tension to keep readers of all ages rapt. Percy's own discovery of the world of Greek mythology provides an excellent introduction to the newcomer, and the story's layers of reference to Homer, Bullfinch, and beyond will provide satisfying touchstones to readers' further explorations of the myths themselves.
