Finding Camp Half Blood and More!

Finding Camp Half Blood and More!

 

Contributed by Kayla King, Blog Manager and Staff Reviewer

 

I still can't believe it has been ten years since Percy Jackson found his way into the hearts of readers. With the help of Disney-Hyperion, I get to discover the magic of Camp Half Blood all over again and now I'm sharing the magic and more with all of you!

 

For the next few months, I will continue to celebrate Rick Riordian and the amazing world he's shared with us over the past decade. Do you love Percy Jackson as much as I do?! Let me know in the comments on our last Percy post HERE and you could win the giveaway! Share your favorite Percy Jackson memory or other Camp Half Blood stories with #ReadRiordan and #YABC on social media! 

 

Monday, I came home to a monster package outside my door, one fit for an Olympian!

And when I saw this lovely #ReadRiordan sticker, I knew it had to be my "Presents from Percy!"

I now feel completey prepared to go out out and find Camp Half Blood for myself! It all started with the pins to remind me of my journey ahead, one that has already been ten years in the making since the first book made its debut.

 

Next I found my disposable Percy-themed camera to document my travels to Camp Half Blood. Then came the headphones in order to play the sound of ocean waves. And of course I couldn't be without my Percy Jackson water bottle or dehydration would settle in all too quick.

 

When I found my complete set of the Percy Jackson series, I couldn't wait to use them as maps to find my way back to Camp Half Blood again. The set included in my "Presents from Percy," is the same set Disney-Hyperion has provided to YABC for our giveaway. You can find more information by heading back to our first Percy Jackson post HERE!

 

Now with my Percy Jackson backpack, I can load up all of my gear! But there is one last thing I know I need to really find Camp Half Blood...

My Camp Half Blood sweatshirt of course! So with that, I think I am ready to embark on my journey and rediscover all of the magic that the Percy Jackson series has to offer me all over again. So what about you? Are you going to find your way back to Camp Half Blood this summer? Or will you be traveling there for your first time? Let me know in the comments below!

Description: 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 the all 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.
