Percy Jackson series - digital activity pack and social media

HALF BOYHALF GODALL HERO.

Now with a new cover look, read the story that launched Percy Jackson into the stratosphere, before the Disney+ series comes out!

Look, I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid… until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher.

Percy Jackson is having a bad week. His life has gone from totally normal to monsters-from-Greek-mythology-randomly-appearing kind of strange. Worse still, the king of the gods thinks Percy has stolen his all-powerful lightning bolt – and it seems making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to catch the true lightning thief and stop all-out war from erupting on Mount Olympus…

What could possibly go wrong?

Full of legendary heroes, mythical creatures, ancient Greek gods and enduring friendship – from the global bestseller Rick Riordan.

We would love to see you using the resources on social media using #PercyJackson #PJO and tagging puffinbooksuk, penguinplatform and readingagency.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
