Reader Review - The Lightening Thief

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Reader: Thomas, age 11

Book: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief

Why is this your favorite book? The Lightening Thief is the best books I’ve read. It’s about a boy named Percy. He is a demigod - some who has one of their parents as Greek god, and the other as mortal. In the book, someone steals Zeus’ lightning bolt. The gods suspect it is Hades, so Percy must go on a quest to get the stolen bolt back.

Who would like this book? This book is really good for anyone who likes books about mythical creatures, or anyone with ADD or ADHD (Percy has both of these).

Thanks for the great review Thomas! Every month we will be featuring a different reader and their current favorite book. To be featured on our blog, send an email to tamara@shortgrass.ca with your name, title of the book you would like to review, and a photograph of yourself.
