A Note for Customers from Illustrator John Rocco Dear Readers, When I was about eight years old I had the great luck of stumbling upon my fathers collection of Classics Illustrated comic books I instantly fell in love with the stories of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, H.G Wells, and James Feni Cooper Many years later, when I became interested in illustration, I discovered the beautiful hardbound editions of these stories featuring the arresting artwork of incredible artists like N.C Wyeth, Howard Pyle, and Maxfield Parrish What I love about their paintings is not just the beautiful draftsmanship, color and composition, but their ability to capture a moment that held the promise of swashbuckling adventure That promise let me know that if I read the words surrounding that picture, I could unlock the adventure. That promise is what I tried to achieve when creating the pictures for this incredible series My approach has never been just to describe a scene from the book, but to create an illustration that offers tension and mystery an image that provides just enough information to leave the viewer wanting to know When I was asked to create images for the Deluxe Edition of Rick Riordans The Lightning Thief it was a dream come true It was my chance to illustrate what I consider to be a new classic The Lightning Thief has so many wonderful moments it was difficult to choose what to paint, but I knew I wanted to create a balance of dramatic scenes and quiet moments and to capture the spirit of Ricks unforgettable characters It has been my own great adventure to help bring this book to life in a new way, in color, on the page. I hope you enjoy this Deluxe Edition of The Lightning Thief. Yours, John Illustrations from Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Lightning Thief Deluxe Edition Click to Enlarge Percy and a Nereid Percy and Annabelle on their way to Las Vegas Percy at the Entrance to Mount Olympus Starred Review Grade 5 9An adventure quest with a hip edge At first glance, Perseus Jackson seems like a loser readers meet him at a boarding school for troubled youth , but he s really the son of Poseidon and a mortal woman As he discovers his heritage, he also loses that mother and falls into mortal danger The gods still very active in the 21st century world are about to go to war over a lost thunderbolt, so Percy and sidekicks Grover a young satyr and Annabeth daughter of Athena set out to retrieve it Many close calls and monster attacks later, they enter Hades s realm via L.A A virtuoso description of the Underworld is matched by a later account of Olympus hovering 600 floors above Manhattan There s lots of zippy review of Greek myth and legend, and characters like Medusa, Procrustes, Charon, and the Eumenides get updates Some of the Labors of Heracles or Odysseus s adventures are recycled, but nothing seems stale, and the breakneck pace keeps the action from being too predictable Percy is an ADHD, wise cracking, first person narrator Naturally, his real quest is for his own identity Along the way, such topics as family, trust, war, the environment, dreams, and perceptions are raised There is subtle social critique for sophisticated readers who can see it Although the novel ends with a satisfying conclusion and at least one surprise , it is clear that the story isn t over The 12 year old has matured and is ready for another quest, and the villain is at large Readers will be eager to follow the young protagonist s next move.Patricia D Lothrop, St George s School, Newport, RI Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
