Percyjackson2_130Hey, all — congratulations to everyone who wrote in and answered all my Percy Jackson trivia questions, even the really self-aggrandizing one about my favorite band ever! Here are the answers, along with the original questions:

1. On his travels in Sea of Monsters, Mr. Jackson meets Circe. What does she turn him into?
"A guinea pig" – A Major Bibliophile

BONUS: What similar animal does Circe turn Odysseus into? "odysseus wasn't changed into an animal, his crew mates were changed into swine" – rachel (Good catch, rachel, I'm wrong and you're absolutely right! Fifty gold stars!)

2. Annabeth teaches Percy about "hubris" — a key element of the Icarus myth. How did Icarus die?
"flying too close to the sun" – rachel

(DOUBLE BONUS: What awesome heavy metal band wrote a song about this? "Iron Maiden?I DON'T KNOW!" - songheart (Exactly right, songheart!)

3. Which famous pirate do Percy and Annabeth meet?
"Blackbeard" - dramateller

4. Who was the original hero associated with the quest for the Golden Fleece?
"Jason" - A Major Bibliophile

(ULTRA OBSCURE) What old man was changed into a rock by Hermes for betraying him?
"The old man of Onchestus." – songheart

Congratulations again, everybody! Now celebrate by buying yourself some Iron Maiden albums and air guitaring until your fingers fall off!

Less talk, more rock, Splotters!

    I agree, Percy Jackson is an AWESOME series! I read all 5 books, and can’t wait till the movie! It would be so cool if it was real, though! PERCY JACKSON FOREVER!!!!

  2. Taylor

    on the 5th book now its sooo awesome i would recamend this book to anyone who likes to read and love action packed books!!!!

  3. CK

    In my opinion, PJ & The Olympians is the BEST series to check out… better than certain series about coughcoughsparklyvampirescoughcough….which, from hearing about them, sound boring!

  4. NATHAN

    THE PERCY JACKSON BOOKS THE MOST COOLEST BOOKS IN THE WORLD I ONLY READ ONE BUT YOU CAN TELL BY READING JUST ONE TYSON AND PERCY MAKES A GOOD NO WAIT A GREAT TEAM

  5. Kendal

    I love the series, Rick Riordan is a genious! It would be so cool to be a daughter of Zeus!

  6. jordan

    greatest series EVER! it would be so awesome to be a demigod. i’d be a son of ares, hopefully.

  7. Nike

    The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is the BEST ever. Twilight’s superficial and does not have the humor, heroism, issues of adolescence, life lessons, and GREEK MYTHOLOGY!!!! Much love to Rick Riordan!

  8. Miss Alana

    for The Sea of Monsters:
    I loved all 5 books. My Mom and Dad liked all 5 Too. I met RICK RIORDAN in ’08; he was funny.
