From the Publisher
A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know
about the Greek gods, and I was like, Can we do this anonymously?
Because I don''t need the Olympians mad at me again.But if
it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with
them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all
this down will be my good deed for the week.
So beginsPercy Jackson''s Greek Gods, in which the son of
Poseidon adds his own magic--and sarcastic asides--to the classics.
He explains how the world was created, then gives readers his
personal take on a who''s who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus.
Percy does not hold back."If you like horror shows, blood
baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read
on, because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that."
Dramatic full-color illustrations throughout by Caldecott
Honoree John Rocco make this volume--a must for home, library, and
classroom shelves--as stunning as it is entertaining.
