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.

Another one on rick riordan's great books. I love all of his books and I like this book soo much because it has lots of history, greek mythology and the book is pretty funny. Along with the Kane series and the heroes of Olympus series this book is a reread for me. Each story is captivating and funny as "Percy Jackson" puts in his own perspective's on each hero's actions, names, etc.

This is another great set of stories, organized in chapters, written about Greek Mythology! Except now, we are learning about the classical heroes of the older days, and what they did to make themselves so well-known. For anyone who wondered what Hercules's twelve labours actually were, to any regular mortal who was just curious about who Percy Jackson even was, this is an awesome place to begin. Maybe read a chapter a day to expand your knowledge about these heroes? Regardless, Rick Riordan has satisfied another round of readers. 5/5 Stars.

I loved this book! I borrowed this along with several others, not realizing how big this book was. It took a while to finish, but it was DEFINITELY worth it. My favorite stories were of Perseus, Psyche, and Orpheus!

i loved it! Despite the fact that its pretty much a history book.

Fans of Rick Riordan’s popular “Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods” and “The Heroes of Olympus” books will gleefully welcome this new, oversized, colourfully-illustrated collection of twelve stories about various ancient Greek heroes, including Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, Hercules, Jason and others.
Titles such as “Hercules Does Twelve Stupid Things”, “Theseus Slays the Mighty – Oh Look! A Bunny Rabbit!” and “Whatever It Is, Bellerophon Didn’t Do It” confirm that Percy Jackson’s characteristic amusing, witty and irrelevant narrative style continues in this companion volume to “Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods”.
Readers are invited to “put on their lion skin cape, polish their shield and ensure that they have lots of arrows with them” before venturing four thousand years into the past to find answers to such burning questions as “Who tamed Perseus … and how did he outwit the evil Gray Sisters?”, “Who was raised by a she-bear?” and “How did Bellerophon come to be the king of Lycia after defeating the Amazons?”
In narrating these adventures, Percy Jackson breathes new life and new perspectives into the traditional myths that he retells (and embellishes) of the ancient Greek heroes and gods, including both famous and lesser-known figures. The tales are fun, intriguing and easy to read, and range from 12 to 71 pages in length. A bibliography with suggestions for further reading – and an index – complete the book.
Rick Riordan is a best-selling, high-profile author who writes both for children and adults, and illustrator John Rocco is a Caldecott Honor Award winner.
** Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.
