When 9-year-old Haley Riordan fell in love with ancient Greek epics but struggled to read because of dyslexia, his father came up with bedtime-story adaptations of the archaic tales. Thus, Percy Jackson, demigod hero, son of Poseidon, was born.

Rick Riordan’s wildly popular young reader book series follows 12-year-old demigod, Percy, and his magical friends on all sorts of Olympic adventures drawn from Greek heroic mythology and the epics of Homer and Virgil. The action-packed series reimagines the Greek mythos, setting Mount Olympus atop the Empire State Building and creating modern retellings of the trials of Theseus, Perseus, Herakles, and Jason.
Though the series wrapped nearly 15 years ago, it is still beloved by adults and children alike as we still ask ourselves, “Who’s my godly parent?” and not-so-patiently await the upcoming TV adaptation.
Whether you want to commemorate your own love for the series with our gold foil Percy Jackson Legendary Set or inspire another mythology fan with our original edition, both are designed to look stunning on shelves and reflect the wonder within the stories.
