Definitely a book for older kids this is an exciting adventure mixing modern American kids and ancient Greek Gods. It will certainly improve your knowledge of Greek myths! It zooms along at quite a pace and keeps you rooting for the lead character, Percy. A good book for girls and boys who enjoy an adventure story with plenty of plot twists plus goodies and baddies to love and hate. It is set in America so the language reflects this. There’s a whole series of Percy Jackson books to keep the kids entertained!
