Greek Mythology

If you've read the Percy Jackson books or are just interested in Greek Mythology, I have a few good books to read .  If your looking for something quick and easy, The Greek Gods and Heros and Monsters of Greek Myth by Evslin, Evslin & Hoopes is the way to go .  These are easy books with the basic stories .  If you are looking for a more in depth look at the Gods and stories Edith Hamilton's book Mythology is a good one to try out .  It has more of stories than the other two and more information about each God .  This is definitely a MUCH harder book though .

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a five book series by Rick Riordan .  The books follow the life of Perseus Jackson who is a demi-god . Meaning one of his parents is a Greek God and one is regular person .  I can't really tell you to much about the books without spoiling the entire thing, so you have to read these yourself . :)  Rick Riordan brings Greek Mythology into the real world .  Famous landmarks are now places from mythology .  Mount Olympus is over the Empire State building, monsters are living in the Bermuda Triangle, and the Underworld is under Los Angeles !  This series is definitely for ages 9 and up . If you haven't read these yet, you should .  Visit Rick Riordan's website for more information about him and the series:  www.rickriordan.com  Enjoy :)

Captain Ethan: Volume 1

Foooosh!  As Captain Ethan soared into the sky, he used his sonic hearing and heard a distant cry for help.  Somebody was going to be murdered!  Captain Ethan sprang into action, flying at high speed towards the call. He used his super strength and destroyed the symantic power lock.  He then bust in and put the killer in a plasma cage while beating up the other 5 thugs.  The next day everybody was buying the newspaper.  The headlines said: Who is Captain Ethan!  Meanwhile, Ethan enjoys breakfast with his children, Noel and Francesca, and his wife Nina.  Beep!  Beep!  Ethan's super hero gizmo was calling!  Ethan said he needed to go to work but really it was his day off, so he got his outfit and set off to the site.  Oh no!  It was Captain Ethan's arch nemesis,   Dr. Karnop!  He had to think fast, the world was in peril!  He quickly punched this way and that way! He defeated Dr. Karnop and saved the day once again!  THE END.
