My Thoughts On The Percy Jackson Books

Today I am writing a review on the Percy Jackson book series.

The Percy Jackson series is one of the best book series I've ever read.It is probably,next to Magic Tree House,my favorite book series.Its mainly about a boy named Percy Jackson out on an adventure to save Camp Half-Blood,Olympus,and the world as we know it.Although,nothing is easy,especially when everywhere you look there's a monster trying to have you for lunch.No wonder its a New york Times Academy Award Winner.And its kid friendly too! Although,if your one of those people thats against comedy and action,I wouldn't recommend your child reading these books.My favorite character in the entire series was probably Grover Underwood.Hes always mumbling for food,which I do sometimes too.This book series,in my opinion,is best for kids age 9 and up.

That's my review on the Percy Jackson series.The End.

More Pictures By DJ

This is DJ's mom, and I am getting these on his blog for him, so I can delete them from the hard drive. They take up a lot of space after all. DJ has one first and second place so far, for two different pictures in two different contests. I am a proud momma. I actually have more to add over the next few days. The pictures of the moths will be used for our Entomology curriculum next year.

Fishy Friday: Orange Shouldered Tang

Today for Fishy Friday,I'm going to tell you about the Orange Shouldered Tang.

The Orange Shouldered tang,Acanthurus olivaceus,is a good sized tang reaching sizes of 10-14 in.It sets its name from the orange line on the side of its body.They come in two colors: White,and bright yellow.The juveniles are usually yellow,and they develop their orange line as they get older.Found out by Australia and Japan,it is a popular fish to tourists.The adults are a creamy white color in the front,but more blue in the back(I don't know why.).The dorsal fin has a bluish tint to it at the end,same with the pectoral fin.Its amazing to see that this animal can go through such a color change in its lifetime.They are herbivores,mainly feeding on algae and something called detritus.They may live to 10 years old.

That's my report on the Orange Shouldered Tang.I got the info from and and the pics from free google images and End.

Fishy Friday: Purple Fire Fish

Today for Mondays Fishy Monday (I'm thinking about changing it to Fishy Friday,more catchy dontcha think?) I'm going to tell you about the Purple Firefish. The purple Firefish is a member of the goby family.I ranges in sizes of 3-4 inches when fully grown.The upper side of the fish is bright white,but as you go closer to the tail fin the body gets darker.It has purple and red fins all along its lower back and belly,but the tail is mainly purple.Depending on how you look at it,this fish can have different color hoods on its head.Its usually purple,but in the picture up top its a shiny bluish color.The eye is a yellowish color.It is found in the Indo-Pacific,usually hiding in between small rocks to hide from predators.Because its so small,it has to be on constant alert for predators like sharks and groupers.They are also constantly looking for food themselves.They feed on crustaceans and zooplankton.

That's my report on the Purple Firefish.I got the info from and the picture from free google images.The End.
