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.

This is a very funny book and the types of stories that are in here are very descriptive. The sense of humour that this book is written as is for any age group. It includes stories from around 3000 years ago. Some of them are about Perseus (Zeus’s son), Athene, Daedalus, Psyche, Phaethon, and Otrera. There are many more stories in this book and each has its own unique event. The only similar thing about most of them is that they all end up as a bad ending. The adventures that are in each story include a lot of action and are very tragic. I would recommend this book to people who are looking for some trouble to arise. I mean if they want to see some cold blooded action, then this book would be a really good recommendation.

Percy Jackson Greek Gods is a funny book about gods like Zeus, Hades, and Athena. A lot of gods eally like power and love. Not all gods are mentioned. Review by Amica Hamilton.

This book is so cool! I love reading them at night before sleeping. The stories are soo interesting and sometimes funny and sometimes scary. But since this is in Percy Jackson's point of view, it makes these stories really funny. My favorite story about the gods, of all of them is Athena's. (My favorite Greek goddess:)

This book may have a large cover and huge amount of text, but in a way it is like a huge collection of bedtime stories. Narrated through the voice of Percy Jackson, (who only wanted the pizza in the contract), sparks of humour and original Greek Mythology facts are pulled into this wonderful set of stories. In here, we as readers get to learn about each of the twelve Olympians, and more to who they are behind the scenes and times. Really, these stories can be suitable for the youngest to the oldest of readers. However, the only downside to this book was that it was a bit heavy to carry home! 5/5 Stars.

This book is about the Greek gods. I love how when you read the book, you can hear Percy Jackson talking to you. In a way, it could be educational, but I like this book because you can learn about Greek myths and gods. Overall, this book is educational and great.

you wanted to be famous for feasting

Artemis batted her eye lashes. 'Anything?' 'Anything! I promise on the River Styx!' Boom. Magic words. You never think the gods would've been smarter about not making rash promises on the river Styx but Zeus never seemed to learn. Some girls might've asked for a pony or a new cell phone or a shopping spree with their friends at the mall.Some might've asked for front row tickets to the hottest boy-band concert or a date with somebody really awesome like Percy Jackson or somebody.(What ? It could happen.)

Percy Jackson, a modern-day demigod, tells the stories of the Greek Titans, Gods, and monsters using a great sense of humour and knowledge. This book goes through the stories from the Greek Creation to the reign of the Gods. Zues, Hera, Posideon, Hades, Demeter, Dionysus, Persephone, Athena, Ares, Apollo, Artemis, Hestia, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, and Hermes, read it all! The monsters include Typhon, Kampé, Echidna, and many more! This book was a great read and I give 5 stars: *****
