Percy is looking forward to another summer at Camp Half Blood but little can he know what is in store for him this summer. Having disturbing dreams about his friend Grover, he is sure that something is wrong. And then his school is attacked by monsters and he learns that his new friend, Tyson is actually a cyclops. Things are not going well at camp either. The tree that protects the camp has been poisoned and is dying. This does not bode well. The only cure for Thalia's tree is the Golden Fleece! But Percy also needs to save Grover who is being held by a giant cyclops who mistakenly thinks that Grover is a beautiful woman. So the quest is on.
Iíd made it through an entire
school year without being kicked out. Until the last day of school. Thatís
when coach Nunley set us up to play dodge ball. What he didnít realize
was that the other team was NOT students at the school. Nope, were monsters,
and they were throwing fiery metal balls at us. My new friend Tyson, however,
actually caught two of them and sent them back towards their owners. Then
he knocked one aside into the bleachers.
