If you can get your kids to read these books then you are doing them a favor. These books are just plain fun but they also have many hidden treasures. The books have legends and history and ancient tales for them to read and maybe even remember. These are lessons that may creep up in school. These books have some fun mixed with knowledge. I cannot think of a better thing for a kid than to read for fun and accidentally learn something. The 30 Clues series is the same. Many historical and geographic facts mixed with a fun story.
I cannot say more about Riordan than I will read anything he writes and my kids will also. If he wrote a post-it note list, I might just read that too.
This is a very cute story and has some great ideas and twists. I just wish he had written the next few books in the series.
I am an educated adult and I love Riordan's books. I have read all of his so called children's books. He is a greta writer. I read a novel a week and his books are a fantastic break from my normal readings. I very my topics weekly but I always go back to a few authors. Riordan is on my top list.
This book is wonderful, and it was very well narrated and easy to follow, even for my 5-year old troublemaker. After seeing it on film, in various productions, hearing it again in its unabridged format brought back to me the whole story, in all the richness of detail that no movie can portray. I think this book is particularly suitable in Audible format.
