9780141355207: Percy Jackson And The Greek Gods

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 readers 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."

Dramatic full-color illustrations throughout by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco make this volume--a must for home, library, and classroom shelves--as stunning as it is entertaining.

He has also illustrated books by Whoopi Goldberg and Katherine Patterson. Before becoming a full-time children's book creator, he worked as an art director on "Shrek" for Dreamworks, and for Disney Imagineering. He lives in Los Angeles.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–7—Riordan takes the classic guide to Greek myths and makes it his own, with an introduction and narration by beloved character Percy Jackson. With 19 chapters, this oversize hardcover includes a variety of stories, from the early tales of Gaea and the Titans to individual tales of gods readers encounter in the "Percy Jackson" series (Hyperion), such as Ares, Apollo, and Dionysus. Percy's irreverent voice is evident from titles such as "Hera Gets a Little Cuckoo," "Zeus Kills Everyone," and "Artemis Unleashes the Death Pig," and the stories are told in his voice with his distinctive perspective ("Another guy who got a special punishment was Sisyphus. With a name like Sissy-Fuss you have to figure the guy had issues..."). The format and illustrations are fairly traditional, considering the tone, featuring painterly depictions of the gods and their world. While these are actual tales of Greek mythology, Percy's take adds more color than would be helpful for those working on research projects or reports. The stories do make for fun reading, however, and might work as starting points for schoolwork. This original and wildly entertaining spin on Greek mythology is bound to be popular among fans of the series.—Heather Talty, formerly at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, New York City

Descrizione libro Puffin. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Condizione libro: New. Who could tell the true stories of the gods and goddesses of Olympus better than modern-day demigod Percy Jackson? This unusual mythology guide for readers 9 and up (the British edition of Percy Jackson's Greek Gods) offers Percy's own take on the Greek gods that made such a mess of things in both the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus series. Want to know how Zeus came to be top god? How many times Kronos ate one of his own kids? How Athena literally burst out of another god's head? Percy gives his hilariously sarcastic perspective on the gods' feuds, fights, and love affairs. "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." This edition includes the bonus short story "The Son of Sobek," in which Percy Jackson meets young Egyptian magician Carter Kane. 464. Codice libro della libreria 62163

Descrizione libro Penguin Books, 2014. Softcover. Condizione libro: New. Percy Jackson didn?t originally like being the son of Poseidon. He warmed up to the idea later, given its perks. However, he came to realize that the gods are a strange bunch, their stories are usually told by god-fearing mortal bards who don?t really know them that well. In this book, Percy tells the story of the gods from his point of view. Hilariously critical of their actions and their temperaments, Percy reveals how Zeus became the head honcho, and how Kronos ate one of his own kids. He also reveals how Athena burst out of another god?s head, quite literally. In plain monochrome, Percy takes readers back into the Homeric world we all know, but he shows us that no one knows it like the son of a god. Printed Pages: 464. Codice libro della libreria 79129
