When headmaster Nero and Raven’s plans start to fall apart it is up to the kids to formulate their own, highly dangerous and very unauthorized rescue operation to save their friend.

When that same substitute refuses to eat the Lunch Lady’s famous French toast sticks, she decides there’s something not quite right too.
The kids follow the substitue after school. The Lunch Lady follows the substitue after school. Where does he go? Straight to a secret warehouse to meet his evil genius boss. Will his evil plan work?
Not if it’s up to this Lunch Lady who’s got exploding chicken nuggets and fish stick nunchucks hidden in her apron pockets. With her gadget making sidekick Betty, she keeps order in her cafeteria…and in the world.
Prince Nestor is used to being treated like, well, a prince. He bosses people around, he’s spoiled, he expects people to immediately do what he has asked them to do. But the Prince has a problem. He knows about a magic daggar and some magic swords that are the key to ultimate power. His problem is that he needs to get to the swords before the evil Lord Spite gets to them.
The prince decides to seek out Quest, a former hero who has lived in seclusion for the last 20 years. Quest is smart, strong and experienced, but he is also retired. Quest is not interested in helping out, but when the prince is attacked right in front of him, Quest has no choice but to take action, and when he does, he gets caught up in the Prince’s adventures.
This is a really colorful and action packed comic book. Quest and Nestor are both seriously stubborn – both are used to getting their own way. Quest kind of reminds me of Shrek – he’s roped into being a hero when he really just wants to be left alone. Like Shrek, Quest is also sharp-witted and sarcastic. He continues to help Nestor, despite being constantly annoyed by him.
Book four in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is just as fast paced, exciting and funny as the first three. Percy, our favorite half human, half Greek God hero can’t seem to stay away from trouble, trouble always finds him. This time it’s evil demon cheerleaders. To stop them, Percy destroys yet another school. Will this kid ever graduate?
After the explosion, Percy flees to Camp Half-Blood in hopes of getting a grip on what the deal is with demon cheerleaders. He finds out that the Titan Lord Kronos is assembling an army of monsters, demons and other nasties to overthrow the Gods. Kronos’s plan is to attack Camp Half-Blood by entering through a giant underground maze that has an exit inside Camp Half-Blood.
Percy and his friends enter the maze in a crazy attempt to stop the invasion. This maze is no ordinary maze. Hidden entrances and exits exist all over the US…if you know where to find them. And to top it off, the maze itself is alive! The passages in the maze move and change so that finding his way back out again is as much of a challenge to Percy as the monsters and demons inside it trying to kill him! He’s got his friends along; Annabeth, Grover & Tyson as well as Rachel, a mortal with monster vision, to help him find the way. Author: Rick Riordan
