Demigods and Monsters:
Your Favorite Authors on
Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series
edited by Rick Riordan
including my essay "Percy, I Am Your Father"
How are Greek gods like your middle school principal? Would you want to be one of Artemis'
Hunters? Why do so many monsters go into retail -- and why are they never selling anything a
demigod really wants?
At the beginning of The
Lightning Thief, Percy Jackson tells us to stop reading: if we suspect we, too, might be
demigods, we should put the book down right away. But how can we, when the world he
lives in is so much fun?
Spend a little more time in that
world -- a place where the gods bike among us, monsters man snack bars, and each of us has the
potential to become a hero.
- The pros and cons of having a god as a parent
- Why Dionysus might actually be the best director Camp Half-Blood could have
- How to tell a monster when you see one
- Why even if we aren't facing manticores and minotaurs, reading myths can still help us deal
with the scary things in our own lives
