The library is running a competition to coincide with the release of the second film in the Percy Jackson series, The Sea of Monsters. The stories, by Rick Riordan, focuses on the adventures of demi-god Percy Jackson, the son of a mortal and Greek god Poseidon. The first book The Lightning Thief proved popular and Sea of Monsters is set to repeat its success.
Librarian Mrs Adams has put together a display featuring the Percy Jackson titles, plus books on Greek and Norse myths. She said: ‘Percy Jackson is really popular and has been for quite a long time. As well as an introduction to the series for those who have not read it so far, it is a also a chance for students to read more widely on other myths and legends. Percy Jackson features a lot of gods and monsters and it is a battle of good versus evil with many memorable characters.’
There is a crossword, word search and character identification competition running in the library. Prizes will include Percy Jackson themed items as well as general prizes and all competition entries should be handed in to the library by Wednesday 9th October 2013.
