The Lightning Thief
Friday, February 13, 2015, 10 am
Grades 2 – 7
Based on the popular book series by Rick Riordan. Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school…again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Dog is alone in his store, but soon realizes that when he is surrounded by books, he is never alone. Dog begins to read the books in his store and discovers that when customers finally come to his store, he knows exactly which books to recommend.
