The Lightning thief is a 2005 fantasy adventure novel based on Greek mythology, the first young adult novel written by American author Rick Riordan.

Percy and his friends Annabeth chase and Grover underwood go on a quest to prevent a war between the gods Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. The Lightning Thief was published in June 2005 by Miramax books, an imprint of Hyperion books for children and thus Disney Publishing. The book has sold over 1.2 million copies in the subsequent four years, appearing on The New York Times Children’s Best seller list and being listed as one of the Young Adult Library Services Association’s best books for young adults, among other awards. Development for the lightning thief began when author Rick Riordan made up stories for his son Haley, who had been diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. His son had been studying Greek mythology in second grade and asked that his father come up with bedtime stories based on greek myths. Riordan ran out of myths and his son requested that Riordan make new ones using the characters from Greek myths with a new twist. The Lightning Thief received mostly positive reviews from the public. There are two levels of fun in The lightning Thief. One is the fast paced quest of a young hero and his friends to save the world and added another level of fun here.
