About the Author
Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
The books about Percy Jackson are amazing. My 10 year old, very reluctant reader is now going through them at a rate of knots never seen before. He is reading at least 1 book every 5-6 days, and just loves them. He now prefers reading to playing on his ipad!! Please Rick Riordan, keep writing!
Funny and fast-paced . . . Percy is a hero that every kid will want to emulate * Sunday Express *
Funny . . . very exciting . . . but it's the storytelling that will get readers hooked. After all, this is the stuff of legends * Guardian *
