Since ‘Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief’ is released this week I thought it would be the perfect theme for Book Covers Around The World!

What if the gods of Olympuswere alive in the 21st Century? What if they still fell in love with mortals and had children who might become great heroes — like Theseus, Jason and Hercules?

What if you were one of those children?

Such is the discovery that launches twelve-year-old Percy Jackson on the most dangerous quest of his life. With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction – Zeus’ master bolt. Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him. Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend. Source

This reissue of the book cover is really cool. It shows the more of the danger that Percy faces in the story.



This cover makes me laugh. It shows more of a characterization of the creatures that Percy faces.
