“Packed withhumorous allusions to Greek mythology … along with rip- snorting actionsequences, [this ] book really shines.” – The Horn Book It is worth reading! By: Rick Riordan
What is the genre of this book?The genre of this book is fantasy. This book is packed with Greek mythological creatures, gods, goddesses, and so much more! HOW DARE YOU COPY MY BEARD STYLE! GRRRRRRRR!!!!
So, what is the setting?Through out the book, Percy is at Camp Half-Blood Hill, a camp where all half – blood children attend. Half – Blood children are kids who have a mortal and a Greek god or goddess as their parents. For example, Annabeth’s mom is Athena, goddess of wisdom and battle strategy, and her dad is a human being. Also, the weather in this book’s setting was very stormy because the gods were mad at each other. This book was written in present tense, and most of it was in California. ATHENA HUMAN ANNABETH
Hmm…. Tell me what happens in the story…Percy Jackson, a boy gets kicked out of boarding school… again. However, that is the last time he is going to be in trouble. Lately, mythological creatures and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be everywhere in Percy’s life, so he goes to Camp Half - Blood Hill. This camp does not allow mortals to enter, so he ends up going alone without his mother. Then, Percy is told that Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen master lightning bolt and bring peace to Mount Olympus. However, to succeed on this quest, Percy will have to do much more than find the lightning thief!!!!
Theme Statement! – Friendship is like a knot. Sometimes it is too lose, sometimes it is too tight. Knot Trust
What is your favorite character? My favorite character is Grover, a satyr. A satyr is a half man and half goat living creature. He was one of the friends who joined Percy on his quest to find the stolen master lightning bolt. Grover is a very funny, and kind-hearted person. Even though he could not walk properly like a normal human with his goat legs, he still protected Percy fromthe monsters who wanted to kill Percy.Also, since he is a satyr, he eats tin cansand makes the “blah blah” noise that a goat makes.
Recommendation time!I would recommend this thrilling book to both girls and boys because it is packed with unexpected surprises, suspense, and of course, adventure. This book has “ An adventure quest with a hip edge”, according to the School Library Journal. I connected my life to this book in numerous ways. One of them, was between me and Percy. In the book, Percy was not very good in reading books. Just like him, I am not very good at math. To sum up, once you start reading this novel, you will never put it down – because it is that awesome!
Thank you for watchingmy wonderful ( at least I think it was)presentation everybody! Have a great day!
