Rick Riordan Stories

Flash Windows Media


On the 26th of May, schools from around the world joined us for a very special show with bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series, Rick Riordan.

During the show, we learnt about the tangled lives of Greek gods and goddesses, battled with a gladiatorial draw-along and experimented with how horrible history can shape our own creative writing. Adding to the fun, there was an exclusive reading from Rick’s latest book, The Trials of Apollo, a ‘Who’s Your Greek God Daddy quiz?’ and a question and answer session with Rick himself!

Highlights of the show include:
  • A Pegasus draw-along
  • An exclusive first reading from Rick Riordan’s latest book The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle
  • Children’s questions answered by Rick Riordan
  • A mythical quests quiz

The show was hosted by the Blue Peter presenter Radzi, who was joined by two Team GB athletes.
