Percy Jackson, the narrator of Riordan's novels, has returned to retell traditional Greek myths. Written from Percy's first-person point of view, the book tells a dozen stories, including the original Perseus and the Gorgons, Eros and Psyche, and Atalanta. Complemented by Rocco's elegant paintings, and printed on the thick smooth paper one expects in an art reference, this book is a unique combination: classical Greek myth reference and a very 21st-century retelling. . .it is a joy to read or read aloud, with enough humor to entice and entertain adults, reluctant readers, and mythology fans, as well as fans of Riordan's earlier books. If you can, buy two: one for reference and one to circulate."VOYA
PRAISE FOR PERCY JACKSON'S GREEK HEROES"
A colorful and quite enormous companion volume to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods (2014), this inviting book retells the stories of 12 notable figures from Greek mythology. . .Riordan casts a wide net in choosing his heroes, and the inclusion of four women in this traditionally male-dominated category broadens the book's appeal as well as its scope. Written in the voice of Percy Jackson, these ancient stories sound fresh and vital. Rocco contributes many beautifully composed and dramatic paintings, from full-page action scenes to vertical side panels to small portraits at chapter headings."Booklist
