The Lightning Thief


We bought The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan for our 10-year-old great-nephew. He loved it and since has read all four of the other books in the series. And now my wife and I have borrowed them from him and are enthralled. A modern boy, really a demigod, has adventures with and without help from the Greek gods. What a great way for youth to learn Greek mythology!
