This terrific YA series by mystery writer Rick Riordan revamps Greek mythology in a fun, fresh way kids find absolutely enthralling. Percy Jackson is a trouble-prone teenager with attention deficit disorder and dyslexia. He's also the half-blood son of Poseidon (yes, that Poseidon!), one of 12 Olympian gods making mischief right here in 21st-century America. Riordan ratchets up the action in this third rip-roaring installment, as Percy and his demigod pals set out to find the vanished goddess Artemis -- and to foil a treacherous plot cooked up by the titan lord Kronos.
