    ‘Percy Jackson’ is a pentalogy of fantasy novels written by Rick Riordan that focuses on the titular character. Riordan first came up with the idea for the series as bedtime stories about ancient Greek heroes for his son Haley. His son had been diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia which inspired the author to make the titular character hyperactive and dyslexic.

    The five novels of the Percy Jackson series are set in a world with the Greek gods in the 21st century. The five novels are: ‘The Lightning Thief’, ‘The Sea of Monsters’, ‘The Titan’s Curse’, ‘The Battle of the Labyrinth’ and ‘The Last Olympian’. All the books were published in the United States by Penguin Books. Five supplementary books, along with the graphic novel versions of each book, have also been released. Around the world, the books have sold more than 180 million copies, making them the best-selling book series of all time.
