Author Rick Riordan returns to his Heroes of Olympus series with Book Two: The Son of Neptune. It gets a rave review from Scholastic News Kid Reporter Zach Dalzell, who says, “Riordan made sure this book is different from his other novels . . . Read the book! You won’t be sorry you did!”
If that’s not enough to convince you, another Kid Reporter, Cassandra Hsiao, actually spoke to Rick Riordan about the new book, his life as an author, and hints of what’s coming in the third Kane Chronicles book!
KR: What is something that readers would be surprised to find out about you?
Riordan: Something readers might be surprised to find out is that when I was young I stopped writing for a while and took up the guitar and for a while I thought I was going to be a rock star. But that didn’t work out so well. So I went back to teaching, and I’m glad I did because that led me to write The Lightning Thief eventually.
