    Overview


    Which Greek god makes the best parent?
    Would you want to be one of Artemis’ Hunters?
    Why do so many monsters go into retail?

    Spend a little more time in Percy Jackson’s world—a place where the gods bike among us, monsters man snack bars, and each of us has the potential to become a hero.

    Find out:

    • Why Dionysus might actually be the best director Camp Half-Blood could have
    • How to recognize a monster when you see one
    • Why even if we aren’t facing manticores and minotaurs, reading myth can still help us deal with the scary things in our own lives

    Plus, consult our glossary of people, places, and things from Greek myth: how Medusa got her snake hair extensions, why Chiron isn’t into partying and paintball like the rest of his centaur family, and the whole story on Percy’s mythical namesake.

    Love for Percy Jackson is sweeping readers everywhere -- and not just teens. Other authors love him as well, and they have something to say about him! DEMIGODS AND MONSTERS is a book of essays penned by other authors covering all things Percy Jackson.

    Jenny Han gives godly parental report cards and asks if you could pick one parent out of the god realm, who would you choose? Rosemary Clement-Moore writes a lesson in recognizing monsters, for beginners, of course. Ellen Steiber attempts to answer why Dionysus isn't a poor choice for the director of Camp Half Blood. Nigel Rodgers writes a glossary of "Who's Who?" in Greek Mythology.

    Cameron Dokey, Paul Collins, Carolyn MacCullough, Elizabeth M. Rees, Sarah Beth Hurst, Elizabeth E. Wein, Kathi Appelt, and Sophie Masson also write essays that are humorous, clever, odd, and just plain great.

    Percy Jackson fans will love this book.

    It was literally the most amazing book ever! It wasso fun to read and i couldnt put it down. I love rick riordan and all his books, they keep me entertained- ESPECIALLY this one! You have to get this book! Its AMAZING. Please know this isnt actually real though because if you are religious you don't want to start thinking the greek gods are real because theyre NOT. Rick riordan is writing this to entertain us,which he does VERY well! I loved this book and i will be reading it again and again.

    I bought this book and read it all under the influence that it would be a retty good book. Some of the parts of the book were ok but some just dragged on and on... So while I am not telling to go buy this book I am also not telling you to not buy the book. if you love Percy Jackson or Greek mythology then throw cation in to the wind but other wise you may not like this book...
