Summary:

  In this school year, no monsters appeared before Percy Jackson, a half-blood. He did not get attacked by anything and did not get in any trouble, until the last day of the school year. Percy Jackson and his friend, Tyson, were playing a dodge ball with their classmates. Then suddenly, their classmates turns into giant monsters. They both get attacked by the giants until Annabeth, Percy’s half-blood friend, appears invisibly and save Percy and Tyson. Percy was surprised and asked Annabeth why she appeared, and she told them that the Camp Half-Blood was in a danger.

  They three went to the camp and saw that the camp’s protection, Thalia’s Pine Tree, was poisoned. They also found out that Tyson was a young Cyclop, an ugly big giant, and a brother of Percy, since they were both Poseidon’s son. This was embarrassing for Percy, because nobody really likes Cyclops.

  Percy, Annabeth, and Tyson wants to go on a quest to find the Golden Fleece to cure the poisoned Pine Tree and find the Grover the satyr who is in a big trouble. Although they want to go, the temporary activities director, Tantalus, said Clarrise the daughter of Ares should go. Tantalus send Clarrise, but Percy and the others didn’t understand. They are helped by a god, and secretly went on the quest without getting caught by anyone.

  Their adventure starts heading south to the Sea of Monsters. During the quest, they see a cruise ship called Princess Andromeda where Luke, Percy’s enemy and an old friend of Annabeth, leads the ship. They also went through C.C.’s Spa and Resort where Percy turns into a pig.

  They finally got to the cave to the Sea of Monsters, but many things occur. Can they survive through the quest, bringing the Golden Fleece and help out Grover?
