My fourth grader has read over pages of this book during the last couple weeks. Although he prefers the 39 Clues serious for more action, I find this book a more valuable reading accomplishment. The exposure to mythology will help to pronounce the names. But, more importantly, if you are on the AR system for reading, this book is worth 13 points. Riordan's 39 Clue book was worth several points and is what helped to choose our current title. Having seen the recent flim also helped to make the title a good current choice. I have chose this book to let the youngster realize that even a thick book can be overcome.
The book was adapted into a motion picture and a graphic novel in This book tells of the main character, Percy Jackson , as he discovers a world much bigger than he has ever imagined but is immediately handed a quest to redeem himself from a crime he never commited.
