9780141358680: Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods (Percy Jackson's Greek Myths)

"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 begins "Percy 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 listeners 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."

About the Author:

Rick Riordan is the author of the # 1 "New York Times" bestselling "The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero"; "The Heroes of Olympus, Book Two: The Son of Neptune"; "The Heroes of Olympus Book Three: The Mark of Athena"; "The Heroes of Olympus Book Four: The House of Hades"; the" #1 New York Times" bestselling "The Kane Chronicles, Book One: The Red Pyramid"; "The Kane Chronicles, Book Two: The Throne of Fire; The Kane Chronicles, Book Three: The Serpent's Shadow"; as well as the five books in the #1 "New York Times" bestselling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. His previous novels for adults include the hugely popular Tres Navarre series, winner of the top three awards in the mystery genre. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts with his wife and two sons.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–7—When a publisher asks Percy to write his version of the Greek gods' mythology, the result is an easy-to-understand, modern adaptation of the classic stories. Listeners will be drawn into the elaborate soap opera of Greek gods as seen through the eyes of a 13-year-old son of Poseidon. Jesse Bernstein's character voices are as quirky as the gods themselves but make these ancient archetypes relatable to the modern student. This supplement to the popular "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" and "The Heroes of Olympus" series is a must for all libraries with young listeners interested in more stories of the Greek gods. These great narratives could also be used in piece, or in whole, for classes learning about these ancient myths. With Bernstein's spot-on narrative style, they are sure to please even the most finicky listeners. Recommended for fans of the popular series, those interested in Greek folklore, and anyone who likes collections of short, entertaining stories.—Chani Craig.
