Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday

     The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is my MMGM pick this week.

     The Lightning Thief was the book that got me into reading.  My school librarian recommended this book to me and once I started reading it I loved it.  What really encouraged me to keep on reading was because it was based on Greek Mythology.  By the time I finished The Lightening Thief I knew the names of all the Greek Gods.

     The main character is a boy named Percy Jackson and he is a Demi-God.  He is going on a quest to save his mom.  I liked howPercy was so brave and overcame everything to get back his mom.  This book is one of my all time favorites and I am glad to have The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan as my MMGM.

I was lucky enough to go to a signing for The Last Olympian.

And this is me at at signing for The Red Pyramid.

Rick Riordan is a fantastic writer. You should check out his site to find out more about his books!
