"Lightening Thief" Casting!

I just found out that one of K's favorite books of recent years, "The Lightening Thief," is being cast for film treatment by Christopher Columbus (director of a couple of Harry Potter films, Rent and some others). Logan Lerman (he was Christian Bale's son in 3:10 to Yuma) will take the starring role of Percy Jackson, who discovers his father is the Greek god Posiedon. Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) will pay Percy's best friend, the satyr Grover.

K is extremely excited about this news. If you have a boy around age nine or 10, and don't know the Percy Jackson books, you need to seek them out! (Sorry if that sounds sexist; since I don't have a daughter, I'm a little lost as to what girls might like in this department. Are they into Greek mythology the way boys seem to be?)
