Lightning Thief book coverPercy Jackson encounters a lot of monsters throughout The Lightning ThiefHe must fight a Minotaur, the Furies, and Medusa, among others. 

Your challenge is to create a monster from Greek mythology. You can do this however you like. You can draw one, make it out of Play Dough or Lego. Or make it out of any objects you find around your house. Maybe you want to turn yourself into one of the monsters and create your own costume. Be creative as you like! We want to see your creatures when we meet up for Book Club!
