Abstract:

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school ... again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believe Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself. Until the Minotaur chases him to camp. Suddenly, mythical creatures seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life ... Now Percy has just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property, and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus ... To succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of failure and betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.-Dust jacket.
