‘PYRAMID’: IT’S ANOTHER TOWERING RIORDAN TALE OF MYTHOLOGY
Thanks to Rick Riordan’s best-selling series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, my 9-year-old son can tell you all about Poseidon, Zeus, Ares and other Greek gods.
He and millions of other kids who raced through the five-book series are in for another mythologically infused adventure: Riordan’s The Kane Chronicles: Book One: The Red Pyramid.
The gods, who once again have various issues, are from ancient Egypt this time. They’re loose in the modern world, whose fate may depend on Carter Kane, 14, and his sister Sadie, 12.
Their mom, an anthropologist, died six years earlier in a mysterious accident. Their dad is an Egyptologist with enough secrets to fill the Great Pyramid of Giza.

I loved what Rick Riordan did with Greek Mythology in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and think it’s beyond awesome that he is doing the same for Egyptian Mythology. Anything that highlights ancient history/mythology and brings it into a kid’s radar wins points with me – Mr Riordan’s writing style and humour just sweetens the deal.
