Gods and Monsters

Aleks became obsessed with Gods and Monsters while reading listening to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series this summer. He was also given one of those scratch to draw books full of the things around the same time. He's really quite skilled, I think. He and his friends would also study all the monster books they could find rather intently, learning tons of facts about all the different myths of the world.

Come to think of it, the monster thing goes back to when he was about 2, maybe younger. He was always fascinated with the dark side and Halloween and Scooby Doo. What kid wouldn't be with all those influences out there? Here's some of his drawings.
And here is a lego minotaur he made many months ago. He was a gift for me and lives in my bedroom.

Damek and I just finished reading these three books that are a trilogy: 'Corydon and The Island Of Monsters', 'Corydon and The Fall Of Atlantis' and 'Corydon and The Siege Of Troy'. Wonderful books told from the point of view of the monsters. The monsters are the heroes and the olympians are the "bad guys".
