How do you handle an encounter with Medusa on the New Jersey interstate? What's the best way to take down a minotaur? Become an expert on everything in Percy's world with this must-have guide to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Complete with interviews, puzzles, games, and original short stories by Rick Riordan.
Billed as a manual for newbies entering Camp Half-Blood, this miscellany of all things Percy Jackson may satisfy readers eagerly awaiting the final installment in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, due in May. Three previously unpublished stories in which the son of Poseidon narrowly escapes death while cracking jokes read like scenes cut from previous novels which is a compliment. Spliced between stories two and three are brief, comic "interviews" with Grover, Clarissa and other campers. Bland illustrations depicting the contents of Annabeth's trunk, a map of Camp Half-Blood and a short "sneak peek" at The Last Olympian pad the contents (barely) to book length; the inclusion of a crossword puzzle and a word search makes the book difficult to share. Not a must-read but try telling that to rabid fans. Ages 10 up.

This is great.!
I love the Percy Jackson series, and when I saw they had this book I just had to have it, three great stories that all have to do with Percy Jackson and his friends, it includes interviews with Percy, Annabeth, Grover, a d the Stoll brothers. If you love the Percy Jackson series I highly suggest you buy this book. It's amazing. Rick Riordan out did him self again.
Don't be "lame"
To say the book is "lame" is just immature, especially when you don't say why. No one forces you to buy the book, and there is a sample. This kind of book maybe just isn't for you, so get over it and stop being stupidly negative. This is creative and very well done book. Great job Rick!
First of all this book is not lame and the Harry Potter books are not WAY better. This book is helpful to me. You should love it because the stuff that you wanted to know and needed to know is in the book. Plus I love the portraits. It sets everything straight. I would definitely recommend this to a Percy Jackson super fan. Well...If they didn't have it already! Keep writing Ricky!
