Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo by Rick Riordan- I've only read two Percy books and this one is clearly later on, but it's a contained story, you don't need to have read anything about him. I actually like this older, more mature Percy more though and I'm more anxious I'm not big on anthologies, but I will read about anything Walden Pond Press puts out seriously love them!
I actually like this older, more mature Percy more though and I'm more anxious to continue the series. There are a few spoilery things, like I now know about a girlfriend who was not yet his girlfriend where I had read to and some other stuff, but nothing big. I think that the world aspects would be easy to latch onto for those who haven't read any of the books yet. It was also a decent length at 29 pages.
I really liked it. It's fantasy and I didn't feel like I got enough of a look at the world to really feel it. It also felt a big disjointed to me. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't really my thing either.

Machale- This one was quite good. I loved that we assume one thing and then get a big twist at the end, it really surprised me. And the whole time I was reading I had no idea what to expect.
Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
This was one that we didn't need world building for so it worked very well as a short story. I wouldn't mind more of this particular story actually. Not really to my taste but I can see how some kids boys in particular would enjoy it. This somehow had a well developed world in a very short story. I really loved the setting and connected with the characters surprisingly well. I would love more of this story! I liked the twists though I saw some things coming ahead of time. It definitely didn't work for me, but I can see how some younger readers would enjoy it.
Museum by Kenneth Oppel- This was a pretty decent story. It had enough development to have enough of a connection with the characters. It was easy to settle into the world since it's our own and I liked what it became. I don't want to spoil, so I won't share more, but it was a good story! It works though. It's silly, but I can see how lots of MG boys would think it's hilarious so I think it's perfect for this book even though it didn't work great for me. However, I know that many will enjoy the story. While I know it's well written and is a unique concept, I'm not sure what kids will think of it.
I would recommend this particular story to more mature readers. I know Bradbury fans will enjoy the story, so keep that in mind.

It's just not my own personal style. I think it's got a lot of great ones for MG boys, which is what it's aimed at. While the book says ages and grades I don't think I would have my 8 year old read it, nor would I donate this one to her 3rd grade class. I would say maybe 4th grade and up but 5th, 6th and 7th would probably be more along the right age range.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on another planet, be attacked by alien warlords, or even be taken over by evil robo-shoes? This is the book for you! The Guys Read series have collections of short stories by different authors. In this book all of the stories are Sci-Fi one of my favorite genres. Rick Riordan wrote a new Percy Jackson short story for the book very cool. I particularly loved Bouncing the Grinning Goat by Shannon Hale because it had a medieval feel to it with swords and mystical powers. There is even one story by Shaun Tan that is completely graphic and pretty cool.
I think boys will love this book, although I know a lot of girls who are into Sci-Fi too! Jun 19, Marjolein rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in-english , fantasy , children-ya , mythology. The writing and Percy's wit will be exactly what you'd expect after reading the series. My only complaint is the length. It really is too short, Grover birthday is glossed over in this way. It did remind me I should pick up the next series by Rick Riordan! Feb 19, Elia goldenlyre rated it really liked it. I swear to god this short story was hard to find online.
I mean seriously it's only 30 pages like wtf?? I almost gave up on it.
Learning from Other Worlds
Thankfully someone finally put it online :'- Anyways, I liked the story, but it's definitely not as good as some of the other short stories. Nov 17, Ebru Kazak rated it really liked it. This book is a brilliant compilation of beautifully written, impressive stories that I'd definitely recommend to any fantasy reader: Especially to young beginners who would no doubt be lured to the genre with it.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this collection of short stories. Aug 06, Aaliya added it.
I'm, is this fake, never heard this before in my LIFE. We have some rather seriously devoted Percy fans in our school. Summary: In this story, Apollo has a rogue backup singer on the loose in New York City who has capabilities to wrack singers with emotional feelings. Percy and Grover are Apollo's chosen minions to track down and catch the backup singer before Apollo's concert on Olympus that night. And before all of New York is skipping down the street singing one giant Broadway number. My Rating: 3. It was a short adventure with some things that made me quirk a smile.
But Riordan's forte is definitely longer stories that can build more. Starving, she applies to be a bouncer at a pub in a small town. She tricks her way in, managing to keep the rougher patrons under control by trickery and stern looks.

But then some actual bad guys are headed to town and her skills are going to be shown for what they really are unless she can find some way to save the entire town. Also feel like Hale is better at longer stories, and actually would like to see her expand this into one. MacHale Summary: A scout is out for some survival training in the desert. Feeling like he is being held back by the incompetent two group leaders, Kit manages to avoid being in either group and decides he has a better chance of winning the challenge on his own. The next morning, something strange falls out of the sky near him, and Kit finds himself on a run for his life from this strange machine.
My Rating: 5 This was one of the best, if not the best story in the book. MacHale does a great job of building suspense and drawing the reader into Kit's fight for his life. He also masterfully does a slow reveal that all is not as the reader first assumes. There's a great twist to this one.

My Rating: 2. It was just ok for me. It was definitely a short, fast read.
