An action-filled audio recording of The Lightning Thief, published to tie in with the release of the star-studded and eagerly awaited Percy Jackson film.
Rick Riordan is an award-winning mystery writer. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, Rick's first novel featuring the heroic young demigod, was the overall winner of the Red House Children's Book Award in 2006 and is now a blockbuster film franchise, starring Logan Lerman. Rick lives in Boston with his wife and two sons.
The Chris Columbus directed movie, based on the book, is due out on Feb 12, but this is a fabulous entertainment in its own right. -- Kati Nicholl * Daily Express *
