In class we have been reading ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief’ by Rick Riordon as well as the Greek epic poem ‘The Odyssey’ that tells of the return journey of Odysseus to the island of Ithaca from the war at Troy.
Just like Odysseus, Percy also has a quest to complete. Can you compare the novel to the adventures of Odysseus? How is Percy similar to Odysseus?
Can you defend your argument with examples from the text?
During half-term think about how the author manages to grab your interest through their novel.
