Book Overview: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book One: The Lightning Thief

Don't get left behind! Read the book that launched Percy Jackson into the stratosphere before the Disney+ series comes out. You'll be proud to be seen with this stunning paperback edition.

"Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats."-- New York Times Book Review
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school . . . again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Whether you are new to Percy or a longtime fan, this gorgeous paperback edition is a must-have for your library.
