Tomorrow is Percy Jackson’s birthday! Starring in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus, Percy is the son of a powerful Greek god. Unfortunately, this means that trouble has a way of finding him. He manages to get to Camp Half-Blood, where he meets other demigods and discovers that he plays the key role in a potentially world-ending prophecy.

We’ve lost count of how many times Percy’s life has been in danger, but close calls with immortal gods and monsters of old make for great stories. Since every year he survives is practically a miracle, we hope you’ll celebrate Percy’s birthday by reading up on Greek myths and legends! Click the images below for availability. Also check out Rick Riordan’s other series: The Kane Chronicles, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, and The Trials of Apollo.
