Percy Jackson’s legacy as character is unprecedented. As our #ReadRiordan campaign here on Chip and Co comes to an end I want to make one last post for all your Percy and Rick Riordan fans out there like myself.
The original Percy Jackson novel The Lightning Thief came out 10 years ago and brought forth a whole new world of great Greek mythology that had never quite been explored in that way ever before by an author, and it bravely paved the way for mythology to be included more in modern stories and Young Adult novels. The first and second novel would later go on to become movies that were equally as enchanting and wonderful. (Here’s to hope for more Percy movies!!) If you haven’t yet read this series I suggest going to your local bookstore and snapping it up no matter your age. It weaves a tale of enchantment perfect for all ages and I know for a fact it will continue to do so for years to come.
As our celebration of Percy Jackson comes to a close we grab our tridents and pens (that double as swords) and say thank you Percy for the adventure of a lifetime, though I’m sure it isn’t the last we’ll see of Percy or Rick Riordan as he continues to write spell binding novels for a new decade of children equally in awe of his stories.
Stay tuned for more!
