Reviews

Picking up where The Sea of Monsters (full of "humor, intelligence and expert pacing," according to a starred PW review) left off, Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, journeys to Westover Hall after getting a distress call from his best friend Grover (introduced as a satyr in The Lighting Thief). Once there, Grover informs Percy and their other friend Annabeth (the daughter of Zeus) about two new half-bloods, with unknown parentage. Unprepared for the battle that lies ahead, the three friends must contend with these new half-bloods and survive the sinister machinations of the Titan Lord Kronos in The Titan's Curse, the third installment of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. (Disney, $17.95 320p ages 10-up ISBN 978-1-4231-0145-1; May) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Gr 6-9-In this installment, Riordan continues to enliven ancient mythology with wit, contemporary staging, and teenage heroics. Percy Jackson is now 14, a bit older and wiser, yet still entangled with the Fates. Friends, monsters, dysfunctional gods, and the romantic stirrings of all things natural and mythological are encountered. His good friend, if oft-time rival, Annabeth (daughter of Athena) is missing, as is Artemis, goddess of the hunt. Joined by best buddy Grover-the-goat-boy and an argumentative array of accomplices, Percy sets off to fulfill, and hopefully foil, the foreboding prophecy of the Oracle. Plagued by ominous dreams, thwarted by hideous monsters, and challenged by conflicting partnerships, the search party's success hinges on unlikely unity. The droll pitch is teen-perfect, as when Apollo heats up the scene by arriving in his fire-red Maserati, wearing jeans, a sleeveless T-shirt, and loafers. "`Wow,' Thalia muttered, `Apollo is hot.' `He's the sun god,' I said. `That's not what I meant.'" Intricate prophecies and relationships are neatly braided into the adventurous plot. Teachers will cheer for Percy Jackson and the Olympians as they inspire students to embrace Greek mythology and score the ultimate Herculean challenge: getting kids to read. All in all, a winner of Olympic proportions and a surefire read-aloud.-Alison Follos, North Country School, Lake Placid, NY Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
