Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Book 1)

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Book 1)

Summary

Coming soon to Disney+!

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

I was just a normal kid, I went to school (got expelled a lot, but that wasn't my fault), played sports and hung out with my best friend.

Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher.

Now, I spend my time at Camp Half Blood, battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.

And now that Zeus thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt, staying alive is going to be even harder...

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PERCY JACKSON:
· Monsters
· Greek Gods
· Laughs (and terrified screams)

Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 60 million copies of his books worldwide.
