Percy and Annabeth set out on a quest to rescue Grover and save Camp Half-Blood. Kidzworld has the book review of The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan, book 2 in the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series.

Camp Half-Blood's Demise

When Percy Jackson returns to his favorite place in the world - Camp Half-Blood - the camp is in chaos. Someone has poisoned the tree on Half-Blood Hill causing the camp to lose its protection from monsters. To add to the chaos, the centaur activities director Chiron has been fired by the bitter camp director, Mr. D.

Nightmares of Grover

Meanwhile, Percy has been dreaming of his satyr friend Grover, who set off last summer on a perilous quest. In his dream, Grover is being held captive by a satyr-eating cyclops. Percy knows that he must save his friend, and in doing so, he can try to steal the Golden Fleece - the one object that could heal the tree and restore the camp's protection. So Percy requests a quest, only to be turned down. Clarisse is awarded the quest instead, but Percy doesn't take no for an answer.

The Sneaky Quest

With the help of Hermes, the messenger God, Percy, Annabeth and Percy's half-cyclops brother Tyson set out on their own quest only to encounter many dangers along the way, including a ship explosion, an evil spa, and worst of all, Luke and his plans to resurrect Kronos and destroy Olympus.

The Bottom Line

The Sea of Monsters is filled with one adventure after another. Percy and his friends encounter many mythical creatures on their quest, including a hydra, a cyclops, hippocampi, sirens and more. This is the second action-packed book in Rick Riordan's Greek mythology-inspired series, and its film counterpart will be released in August 2013.

Hey guys..People have a tendency to get super bored!! Sit around and not know what to do.. Comment down below if you know what i mean haha... That's what used to happen to me, (still does sometimes) I would spend many hours playing video games, watching movies, Shows, and chilling on Facebook, im not saying i dont do these things. i just spend way less time on these habits. Whit if you could do the same and find something else to do? In return this activity can occupy some for your day, entertain you, and give you results! It could be something you always liked, either from childhood, or maybe its something you like to do right now!!! Ill give you an example.  Check out Aleksreader in youtube to see my new idea.. What do you think about it?
