Rick Riordan looms large in our classroom. Check out all of the quotes this student incorporated in her essay. Way to go, A.J.! Remember, this is student work, unedited by me. So, there are errors, but that's part of what makes it authentic student work.
Son of Neptune
Do you know who Pluto is I will give you a hint… you can find it is this book’s glossary! I recommend the book Son of Neptune By: Rick Riordan because of action, humer, and the glossary are all amazing and hilarious and useful.
First, I recommend the book Son of Neptune By: Rick Riordan because of the humer. The first scene was when Frank, Hazel and Percy went into and field and Hazel got kidnapped by evil grain spirits called karpoi and Percy jumps into action and burns the grass so the karpoi don’t come back to life. Percy shouts at the top of his lungs and shouts, “Don’t touch her again or the grass gets it!” Percy shouts. “He’ll do it he’s crazy!” Hazel chimes. I thought that was so funny when they said that. Next, I thought the part when Arion, Hazel’s horsen first gets introduced because Frank says, “Is this thing tame?” and since Percy knows how to speak horse language he says, “ No, I don’t think so because Arion just said, “I will trample you to death silly chinese-canadian baby man!” That really cracked me up! Lastly, I loved the part were Percy meets the Border god, Terminus. And this what Terminus exclaimed. “Now, come over here so I can pat you down.""But you don't have-" Percy stopped. "Uh, sure."He stood next to the armless statue. Terminus conducted a rigorous mental pat down."You seem to be clean," Terminus decided. "Do you have anything to declare?" "Yes," Percy said. "I declare that this is stupid.” And I declare that this is a very funny book!
The second reason why I think the book Son of Neptune By Rick Riordan is because of the action. First, there is the part were Frank talk about the time when he was a baby and Juno, the queen goddess came to his mother and told him that his life depended on a stick and if it burned up his life would end. I like this part because even if it was a sad part it was very interesting. Next, During lunch Mars, the god of war appears in the form of a Canadian soldier with grenades and a knife lastly to top it off the was caring an oversize M16. he wasn't there to kill, he was there to declare that this son Frank is his son. Because if you aren’t declare, you are undefined and Frank has been undefined for many weeks now and was getting worried. I like that part because I was really getting irked that frank has not been claimed yet so that was an exciting part for me. Last but not least, Percy, Hazel, and Frank went to go to Alaska to defeat the giant and free death for his bondage. When they arrive in Alaska .Hazel memories are renewed from when she lives there almost 70 years ago. The three stay at Hazel´s old house in Alaska. The house was very old and very spooky. They saw old pictures from when it was the 1940’s that made Hazel very emotional. After a restful night they planned their attack of a defeat and rescue mission. That was also the part when Hazel tells Frank about her blackouts and how when she does her blackouts it's basically like watching her life, and that was actually one of my favorite parts. I love how this book has a lot of action and that is actually one of the main things I want in a book.
The third reason why I recommend the book Son of Neptune By Rick Riordan is because of the Glossary. The first time I read the book It said who all the characters godly parents were except for Frank’s but it did say that his mother was not a god or a demigod but she loved to fight and defend her country so I just assumed that it was the Roman war god but I did not know what the name was so I looked it up and it was Mars the roman god of war and later in the book it revealed the secret and sure enough I got it right. Next, there was the time when it first introduced arium which I knew was special but I did not know why so I looked it up and I found out that it meant gold especially imperial gold which bring up the next reason. Lastly, there was the time when first brought up imperial gold which I knew was also special but I also did not know why then I flipped to the very last pages and looked up the section for letters that start with i and found that it was an enchanted gold that is made for killing monsters. That was useful because it also brought up imperial gold in the first book but I did not try to look it up. The glossary was very useful and interesting and also looked up the names of gods and goddesses and what they stand for.
I recommend the book Son of Neptune By: Rick Riordan because of action, humer, and the glossary are all amazing and hilarious and useful.
