5: The theme of this story is a fantasy adventure story that has the great stories of Greek mythology. The book describes that the gods live Mt. Olympus and the gods travel from the most successful,thriving place in the world, New York. The gods palace sits 3,000 ft. above the empire state building. How Percy Jackson gets thrown into this is that his father is one of the main 3 gods sons. His father is Poseidon, the sea god which means he can breath underwater and almost has the qualities of aqua man if you thought about it.

She is Percy's best friend and keeps him out of trouble. Grover-from his disguise, he might look normal but he is a satyr which means he is half goat half human. He has been with Percy since the first book along with annabeth Tyson- Tyson is Percy's cyclops brother who's brute strength helps Percy out alot .

10: About the Author Rick Riordan was an English and History teacher for 15 years teaching in the San Francisco Bay area and Texas at public and private middle schools..His adult fiction has won the top 3 national awards: The Anthony, The Edgar, and The Shamus. Also his short fiction was on "Mary Higgins Clarke", "Mystery Magazine", and "Ellery Queens Mystery Magazine".
11: Recommendation I would strongly recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good action-adventure with Greek Mythology mixed in. Although I do stress that you brush up on some of Greek Mythology's greatest stories because they reference them throughout the book. Also you should learn about the gods and what they do and there background. This is why I recommend this book .
