Waiting on Wednesday: Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
It's a weekly meme about upcoming books we're excited about!

Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes
by Rick Riordan
Publication Date: August 18, 2015

From Goodreads:

Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on all of the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style Readers have come to expect from Percy, (I've had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I'm going to tell you about were the original old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before. . . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan's legions of devoted fans - and for anyone who needs a hero. So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape. Polish your shield and make sure you've got arrows in your quiver. We're going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal loot from evil people. Then, for dessert, we'll die painful, tragic deaths. Ready? Sweet. Let's do this.

Why I'm Excited

- I like anything related to the Percy Jackson series.
- Pretty illustrations!
- If it's anything like Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, it'll be awesome and the most comprehensive compilation of Greek mythology you'll ever find.
