My ten year old son is a big fan of Rick Riordan's PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS stories having read the books, seen the two movies based on the novels, and even gone to see the Broadway in Detroit production of The Lightning Thief. Riordan's books are great for tween-aged readers ( 8 - 12 years old) who are at a middle grade reading level where children's picture books are too simplistic and young adult material may be too advanced.  Riordan's stories have modern day kids become involved in adventures with the characters and creatures from ancient Greek mythology.

My son having finished reading Percy Jackson's Camp Half-Blood chronicles is just now getting ready to read the sequel series THE TRIALS OF APOLLO. These books are written as a sequel to the Percy Jackson stories referring back to those adventures while moving ahead introducing new characters and situations.  Rick Riordan provides some fantastic tales that capture kids attention, inspire their imaginations and get them enjoying reading. Great middle grade reads written especially to be enjoyed by those in fourth through eighth grades.

Fans of Rick Riordan's fantasy world will want to stop by your local Barnes & Noble on Saturday, September 28, 2019 for a special DEMIGOD DAY event. It will include activities inspired by Riordan's books including a demigod scavenger hunt, deciphering secret codes with the Greek alphabet, and much more!

There is no charge to participate but it is encouraged to RVSP in advance: If you go, please share with this dad blogger and rest of our audience some pics of your experience on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #DemigodDay and tagging @Geekdad248 & @ReadRiordan so everyone can join in on the fun.
