"Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" is the first bestselling book in Rick Riordan's phenomenally successful Percy Jackson series - now with a new cover look. Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero. Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea. Rick Riordan is the Mythmaster. The Greek Gods are alive and kicking - go to the website and see for yourself. "It's Buffy meets Artemis Fowl. Thumbs up'". ("Sunday Times").
