During the Blood of Olympus tour, we announced Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes, which will be published on Percy's birthday, Aug. 18, 2015. This is very much like Greek Gods, except about (you guessed it) the Greek heroes like Hercules, Theseus, Atalanta, Perseus, Orpheus, and all the rest. Filled with Percy's snark and sass. Illustrated with full-color art by John Rocco. So heavy you won't be able to lift it. Yes, it will be awesome!
Here's the description:
Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed
Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in
on the all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the
rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style
readers have come to expect from Percy, ( I've had some bad experiences
in my time, but the heroes I'm going to tell you about were the original
old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had
screwed up before. . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott
Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have
classic for Rick Riordan's legions of devoted fans--and for anyone who
needs a hero. So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape.
Polish your shield and make sure you've got arrows in your quiver. We're
going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some
kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal
loot from evil people. Then, for dessert, we'll die painful tragic
deaths. Ready? Sweet. Let's do this.
In the meantime, thank you to everyone who came out on the Blood of Olympus tour. The book is #1 on the USA Today bestseller list!
