What can I say? We love the Rick Riordan Percy Jackson series. Both of my older kids bugged me for months about this book, while they waited impatiently for it to be released.
When we finally got it, The Son of Neptune did not disappoint.
And you know what? My kids know more about Greek (and now Roman) gods now than most adults.
His books are great to read aloud with your kids. If your kids are anything like my kids, though, they will sneak the books after bedtime and stay up long into the night reading them by themselves.
