Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

This has been mine and Boy Lacer’s bedtime story for a while now and I haven’t enjoyed reading a bedtime story so much in ages. Percy Jackson is a boy with issues, he seems to attract trouble, like, for example, particularly monstrous teachers and when it all comes to head he discovers he is in fact a godling, half god – half human. Cue summer camp for half gods and a quest to prevent a war as the gods fight amongst themselves. I really liked The Lightning Thief, as something exciting happens pretty much every chapter and the main characters are really well rounded. As a parent I loved how often we had to stop the story as Boy Lacer wanted to discuss what would happen next or what a character’s motivation was, I don’t remember any other books prompting quite that much discussion.>
