The third book in the most exciting commercial fantasy adventure series since Artemis Fowl.
It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal . . . but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious . . .
Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. Action-packed, funny, accessible writing for both boys and girls aged 10+. Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl.
Praise for The Titan's Curse, and other books in the Percy Jackson series:
'Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical...This is most likely to succeed Rowling. Puffin is on to a winner' – Amanda Craig, The Times
'Funny and fast-paced . . . Percy is a hero that every kid will want to emulate' –Sunday Express
'Funny . . . very exciting . . . but it's the storytelling that will get readers hooked. After all, this is the stuff of legends' –Guardian
'One of the books of the year . . . vastly entertaining' –Independent
'Cool, mad and very funny!' –Flipside
