Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief, Book One, by Rick Riordan

This is a review on...a squirrel!  I do this a lot, sorry, but I just lost my train of thought.  Where was I?

Oh, well, this is a story of an adventure and also love. This is the first book in The Olympians series, by Rick Riordan.  I've read all five of the books in the series, but to tell you the truth, I didn't have a choice to read the first book.  It was completely by accident--I got it as a gift at the end of my summer camp session.  I was sucked in, and anyway I was bored because we were in the middle of a storm.  Well, actually it was more like a tornado.  So.  This book was fantastic, but in the beginning it really didn't tie down because he said he was seeing things, like a teacher disappearing. 

I liked it because we find out who Percy's father is, and there was a lot of water mentioned in the book.  I like water.  When I was in second grade, my teacher, Ms. K, told us a lot about Greek myths, so I was stuck on Greek myths--any kind of mythology--and this book was amazing because it mentioned a lot of monsters I never knew of, so I could learn more about their legends.

Some things I thought were interesting about Percy Jackson:
  • He has ADHD
  • He is a demigod
  • We find who he is
  • He is dyslexic
  • This is a good book
  • He is guy from a prophecy
  • He is the son of a mortal
  • His dad is a god
  • He has a Camp Half-Blood Cabin In Montak
  • He is elevn 
 My rating on Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief (Book One) is 4 1/2 out of 5 chocolate bars.
There is a little bit of mild violence, but it's okay for children.  I read it when I was nine.
