Chiron (Mr. Brunner) - Percy's former Latin teacher; also a centaur (half man, half horse) Setting 1. Percy's apartment
2. Half-Blood Hill

4. The Underworld Summary Figurative Language This book is about an extraordinary boy
named Perseus Jackson, or Percy, for short. Percy is 12 and failing sixth grade at Yancy Academy. They are on a field trip when Percy's least favorite teacher takes him into the museum alone. She turns into a horrible bat-like creature and attacks Percy. Then, his Latin teacher, (also his favorite teacher) throws Percy his pen, which turns into a sword in mid-air. Percy then defeats
the beast, but when he gets outside, no one remembers that teacher. Percy doesn't think much of it, but he doesn't know that this is only the beginning of his long journey. Later in the book, Percy goes to Half-Blood Hill, a place where demigods like him can be safe. During a game of Capture the Flag, Percy discovers that he is the son of Poseidon. All these monsters begin hunting Percy down, and he is given a quest that could save all of humanity, and if he fails, there will be a war between the gods. He must retrieve Zeus'
Master Bolt. Will he succeed with the help of his friends, Annabeth and Grover? Simile "It didn't sound like a place I'd ever go except in an emergency, but this definitely qualified.

Page 277 Evaluation I thought this book was fantastic! I only read it because MEGAN kept bugging me about it. But, I'm glad I read it, because now I'm buying all the books. I would reccomend this book to anyone with a big imagination and people who like Greek mythology. I rate this book 5 out of 5 diamonds! Genre The genre of this book is mythology.
Mythology is when the events are
made up, or fictional.
