The second book of ancient Greek mythology adapted as American teenager adventure and drama is just as it’s fun as its predecessor. In this book, Percy and his friends have to travel to the Sea of Monsters (now in the Bermuda Triangle) to rescue Grover and find the Golden Fleece. Adventures include dodgeball with cannibal giants, a ship full of dead Confederates, escaping Circe with the help of Blackbeard’s pirates, and Grover trying to escape marrying the cyclops Polyphemus. This book also introduces the dim but brave and kind Tyson, one of my favorite characters in the series.
