Percy Jackson & the Olympians (series)

By: Rick Riordan

As the series begins, Percy finds out that Greek myths he's learned about in school are still true today - and he's a son of Poseidon! Throughout the books, Percy meets many friends - children of other Greek gods. They team up on various quests to foil the plans of some of the evil gods. Along the way, Percy and his friends face monsters, mazes, riddles, tricks, and tough choices. But, through courage, quick thinking, and using their special abilities they are able to defend both our world and Olympus!

Mrs. Senechal says:
I absolutely love this series! While I know that Greek mythology is truly just myths, it is fun to imagine that they could be working behind the scenes of our world. The author of this series, does a tremendous job of creating action and suspense that make these books incredibly hard to put down. I just finished the fourth book in the series, and am anxiously waiting for my order of the fifth book to arrive. I'll add more then!
