I am a HUGE fan of everything Rick Riordan releases, so it’s no surprise that I love the beautifully illustrated Greek Heroes.
Who cut off Medusa’s head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and PercyJackson can fill you in on the all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style readers have come to expect from Percy, ( I’ve had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I’m going to tell you about were the original old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before. . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan’s legions of devoted fans–and for anyone who needs a hero. So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape. Polish your shield and make sure you’ve got arrows in your quiver. We’re going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal loot from evil people. Then, for dessert, we’ll die painful tragic deaths. Ready? Sweet. Let’s do this.
My kids and I have had a blast reading up on the heroes in these stories. The book is illustrated by John Rocco. Rick Riordan fans will definitely want to add this to their #ReadingRiordan shelves. If you want to delve further into characters from the books be sure to check out Greek Gods, to get insight into the Gods Percy encounters. Both books are told from the hilarious view of Percy, so get ready for laughs while you learn.
