The Lightning Thief
by Rick Riordan

Have you ever been on a field trip and accidentally (or on purpose) pushed the most disgusting kid in your class in a fountain? And then, did your teacher turn into a hideous monster with long claws like a gargoyle and try to kill you? Well it happened to Percy Jackson! Not only that, but things started going down hill from there! Was every monster in the universe out to kill him? What had he ever done wrong...other than being slightly "different"?

It was true Percy couldn't sit still in school. ADHD. He was always in trouble, it seemed, but he did try to keep his odd, best friend, Grover, out of trouble. Do you think Percy would freak out when he learns that he was a half-blood, the son of a Greek god? Well, wouldn't you?

Gather your courage and get ready for a modern day romp to Olympus with Percy where you'll come face-to-face with centaurs, satyrs, woodland nymphs, minotaurs, and other creatures along with the Greek gods!

After reading The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, you will enjoy the movie, The Chronicles of Narnia, even more!
