Hey Percy Jackson Fans!

Hello Percy Jackson fans! Have you finished the series by Rick Riordan and wonder what to read now?

If you want a novel featuring Greek myths:

Pig Scrolls by Paul Shipton is a hilarious tale in which one of Odysseus’ soldiers is turned into a pig and decides life might be safer that way.

Pandora Gets Jealous by Carolyn Hennesy: Pandora takes a special box to school one day and what happens next is an accident—she swears!

The Shadow Thieves by Anne Ursu begins the “The Cronus Chronicles” series, in which Charlotte and her cousin Zee travel to the Underworld to save their friends from an evil grandson of Poseidon.

Walking with the Dead by L.M. Falcone: when Alex’s dad brings home an ancient Greek corpse it obviously wakes up. Now, Alex and his sidekick Freddie need to take a monster-filled journey through the world of the dead to send him back.

If you want to read stories that inspired Percy’s adventures:

The McElderry Book of Greek Myths by Eric A. Kimmel has a lot of the classic tales and is colorfully illustrated.

Atalanta and the Arcadian Beast by Jane Yolen and Robert J. Harris is part of the “Young Heroes” series that each relate a famous myth in novel length detail.
