The funny thing about this book is that a friend kept recommending it to me and talking about how much she loved it as a kid. I would look for it now and again when I was at half-price but it is a tough one to come by. Recently, I did a big bookshelf reorganization and involved color coding all of our books. As odd as this sounds, while in the process I came across this very book. Turns out Rick had bought it long ago to help with some test writing he was doing.
JT and I haven't given this book the full attention it deserves but we have started supplementing our Percy Jackson with this book. I look forward to battling my Greek Mythology hatred and exploring this book more.
