Description

Coming soon to Disney+!

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

I was just a normal kid, I went to school (got expelled a lot, but that wasn't my fault), played sports and hung out with my best friend.

Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher.

Now, I spend my time at Camp Half Blood, battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.

And now that Zeus thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt, staying alive is going to be even harder...

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PERCY JACKSON:
* Monsters
* Greek Gods
* Laughs (and terrified screams)

Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 60 million copies of his books worldwide.

Review Text

Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea. 'It's Buffy meets Artemis Fowl. Thumbs up.' Sunday Times Rick Riordan is the Mythmaster. The Greek Gods are alive and kicking - go to www.rickriordanmythmaster.co.uk and see for yourself.
