  1. Percy really cares about his mom because, she all ways bring Percy snacks from her job, she protected him from danger, and she loves him and he loves her. Percy doesn’t care about Gabe, he only cares about finding out who is his real father is. Gabe all ways complain about wasting money and Percy thought that his mom should get divorced and marry a person that really cares about his mom. Percy thinks that Grover might know who his father is and he doesn’t want to tell Percy who is his real father.

    I think that Percy was happy when he thought that he was going to found his mom home but when he came home he found his step father gabe and he was playing with his friends and gabe was asking Percy for money and he said that he don’t have any so I think he don’t get alone with gabe and I think Percy and his mother had a great relationship because Percy mom is a good mom and she likes to have fun and they do a lot of thing’s with each other. I think when Percy mom was telling him how his father left before he was born he was very mad and he had a mean face because his dad wasn’t there when he was born.

    Percy friend Grover is a goat and Percy never new that he was a goat he couldn’t walk right but he could run very fast and when they was in car Grover told Percy that he was a goat

  4. Percy relationship with his mother is very close because she understands him. Their relationship is very close because they tell each other about everything. They talk about Gabe and they both keep secrets so they have a close relationship. Percy hates his stepfather. He thinks his stepfather is a jerk. He hates the way his stepfather treats his mother. He also hates his father because he is cheap and his stepfather hates them so they don’t like each other. Percy believes that he real father was there when he was born but his mother tells him that he doesn’t know how he looks because he didn’t see him but he knew that a baby was coming. Percy feels that his father doesn’t love him and his father doesn’t care about him. Percy real identity is he’s a goat from his waste down and he has goat legs but Percy thought that he was a donkey from his waste down.

  5. Percy Jackson’s relation ship with his mother is a strong bond because they have secrets that Gabe does not know about like the trip they were planning. Percy Jackson hates Gabe Ugliano with passion because he has no respect for him or his mother and he also his lazy and he does not care what he says or does and that makes him hate him more. In the story he says he hates his father because of what his mother told him. And Percy Jackson believes that his father was a mystical person with unworldly powers.

  6. Percy and his mom relationship are very good because Percy mom loved Percy so much. Percy’s mom love him so much that she give Percy candy every time when she come from work. Percy loves his mom too. But Percy’s stepfather is the pain in the butt. His stepfather name is Gabe he smells and he is lazy Percy doesn’t like Gabe but Percy’s mom want Percy to like Gabe.

  7. It think that PERCY relationship with his mother is very good. Because they talk about everything. Well not every thing because when Ms.Brunner was talking about PERCY in his office PERCY didn’t tell his mother. So they don’t talk about everything. But they are real close thow close to each other even thow they are mother and son

  8. Percy Jackson's relatioship with his mother is unbreakable Percy's mom only wants the best for him and wants to send him away to a summer camp his father was talking about. Percy doesnt know much about his father he only knows that he abondoned him before he was born, sailed away across the atlantic, got lost at sea and never came back. Percy doesnt like his step father Gabe Ugiliano for smelly Gabe very much because he isn't a good father figure nor a good husband, be believes he isnt right for her as soon as Percy comes home he asks Percy for some money to gamble for a poker a game and when he says no he tells him "Somebody expects to live under this roof they ought to carry their own weight" percy takes out some money and gives it to him.

  9. Percy Jackson’s relationship with his mom is close because they love each other both real close and they wish to never be apart. I think Percy really HATES Gabe because he is smelly rude and always thinks about himself and never bout his family and I think that Percy really hates the way he acts and how he is. I think Percy doesn’t feel anything about his father because he doesn’t know him exactly she probably feels like that he really isn’t his father. Percy’s friend Grover is a goat from the waist down, he is hairy and he has no feet only hooves.

  10. Percy Jackson has a very strong relationship with his mom. Percy describes his mom, Sally Jackson, as the best person in the world. He thinks that his mom works hard for his family and that the only good break she ever got was meeting his father. Percy loves his mom and missed her when he was at Yancy Academy. He was happy that his mom didn’t care about anything else except for Percy being okay.
    Percy doesn’t like Gabe Ugliano; he thinks that Gabe is not right for his mom. Gabe always treats Percy and Sally horribly. Percy calls Gabe, Smelly Gabe because he smells awful. When Percy went into the apartment the first thing Smelly Gabe asked him for was money for his poker game, of course Percy didn’t want to give the money to him but Gabe talked him out of it. Percy thinks that His mom should not be together with Gabe.
    Percy believes that his birth father is tall, powerful, and that he would be proud of Percy if he saw him now. His mother told him that his father left before he was born. That made Percy angry with his father for going on the ocean voyage and not coming back. The thought that went through Percy’s mind was that his real father left him and now he had to live with Smelly Gabe.
    Grover is Percy’s best friend, but he had no idea that Grover knew his mom! Percy wondered how Grover got to their rental cabin but it was clear when he saw his feet. Grover had hooves feet and he didn’t run he trotted to the car so they could leave.

  11. Percy and his mother have a great relationship except the fact that she is hiding secrets from Percy. The only person who he hates the most in Gabriel, which is his mothers boyfriend, Percy hates smelly Gabe because he smells like cigars and beer, and all he does all day is play poker, drink beer, and smoke cigars. I think Percy thinks his farther has something to do with this whole situation. I think Percy hates his compared to what he said on page 40

  12. Percy Jackson and his mother has a quiet type of relationship because they are don’t really talk about things. But Percy’s mom makes him spill it out. It’s kind of like my mom’s and I relationship. We both love each of other to death but we don’t really talk a lot. But lately that’s been change and we have more conversations. They love each other a lot, she comforts him but they don’t really talk about things with each other.
    Percy feels that Gabe isn’t the right guy for his mother because he is a jerk, he drinks to much beer, and he stinks. He asks Percy for money. I feel that should be the way around, Percy should ask gibe for the money. I feel that Percy feels that he does not like Gabe at all.
    Percy belied that his birth father known him as a baby, but his mother tells him that he knew that he was expecting a child but he had to leave on a voyage out in sea. It said in the book that Percy was angry with his father because he didn’t stay with his mother, and he wanted him to go to camp half blood. Percy has a friend named Grover. At the end other the chapter it tells us that Grover is a satyr, he is suppose to watch after percy, an that he is a half GOAT.

  13. In chapter 3, Percy Jackson came home to his mother and his stepfather. His relationship with is mom is really strong and amazing, Percy missed his mother while he was at school. His mother loves him, and never wants him to leave her side again. Percy stepfather on the other hand doesn’t like Percy a lot. Percy calls him “Smelly Gabe” because he smells like steel beer. Gabe is a party animal and Percy hates him and wants him to leave. Percy asks his mother about his father and what he looked like in person. His mother said he was tall and they meet in Montauk. Then, she started to cry. I feel sorry for Percy because he never meet his father before but he thought he did. His friend Gover is a goat. Gover the one who always protected Percy is a goat. He never told Percy about him been a goat, until now.

  14. Today we are going to be talking about what Percy’s life is like outside Yancy academy. Outside of her school it is dangerous because when she was in preschool a snack was wrapped around his neck and after that well you get the point. So it is dangerous when she is not in school. Percy’s relationship with his mom is really good because she is a nice person. So there relationship is good. Percy hates his stepfather because he is mean. He is not so proud about his stepfather he hates him and his guts. Percy believes that his birth father is dead but he s not. He also believes that he got married to another women. He sometimes feels good and other times he does not feel so good. Grover is a wimp he is a goat and his feet are not were they are support to be.

  17. Percy Jackson has special relationship with his mom; with Gabe Ugliano (smelly Gabe) it’s totally a rough situation. Percy’s mom is the nicest lady in the world. Gabe is the dumbest, most insensitive non-caring jerk in the universe. Percy loves his mom but hates Gabe’s guts. Percy thinks his mom deserves better than Gabe and he blames his father for abandoning them.

    Grover finds Percy at Montauk. Percy sees Grover with no pants on. Percy’s mom asks Percy what he didn’t tell her and as soon as he did she told both Grover and Percy to get in the car. Percy understood why Grover limped and was able to run fast because Grover had hooves instead of feet. Percy was shocked when he saw his friend’s hooves.

  18. The relationship with Percy and his mom was kind of different than other people. She was very protective because she sacrificed her life for him by letting the giant killing her. She always gave him snacks from her job. Percy doesn’t really care about Gabe. All he cares about is that he is playing poker, Percy hates that Gabe plays it. The one thing that Percy thought of his father was that he left because he didn’t want him. But it wasn’t true because his father had to leave before Percy was born.

    Grover’s true identity was that he was a goat from the waist down. Percy’s mom told Grover to keep an eye on him so he’s been keeping tabs of him.

    I think that Percy and his mom’s relationship is calm, like their lives are simple without any mishaps, but its not like that none knows why his mother never spoke I a loud voice. Percy is always getting in trouble. Then there is Gabe. He and Percy don’t get along as well as some people might think. There like cats and dogs, always fussing about something. Percy thinks his father is the bad guy in this story. One thing Percy did believe was when she said that neither his father nor him was human, also that his father left before he was born. While they were finished talking about the truth Grover had some a truth to spill to. He was half-blood too. His real identity was a goat!!!!!
    but some how Percy managed to understand alomst every thing he was told.

  20. If I was to give Percy Jackson an advice I will tell him what his mother told him that she kept the father in her hart and he will never forget him and I will give him that advice to keep his mom in his hart and never forget him and to always keep his mom in his hart and to still love her. And never give up on finding the people that is trying to kill you and still all ways remember the stuff that your mother told you they was hints to tell you how you are .And never forget how you are as a person and other things .And do not go home and tell gabe about the car the monster then you have to fight that is what you are supost to do kill the people that are chasing you and never give up.

  21. In chapter three of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief we find out that Percy’s life outside of Yancy Academy is not that pleasant. He came home to his smelly step father Gabriel or as Percy calls him “Smelly Gab” sitting in the living room and playing poker with a bunch if his friends. Percy hates Gab and I think Gab feels the same way about him.
    I think Percy would go completely mad with anger if he didn’t have his mom. He thinks so highly of her and strongly thinks she deserves someone way better than Smelly Gab. In chapter three Percy also introduces us: the reader to his mother and tells the story of who his father was that he had heard from his mother. She told him that his father was a good man and such the usual blah blah blah mothers tell their children if they have not met them. She said that he had to go out to sea on some important mission before Percy was born. Percy didn’t believe this because he had always pictured that he knew him as a baby and still does not believe it.

  22. Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief

    1 Percy’s relationship with his mom is really strong they. They both love each other very much. I can say that there really close together. 2 Percy does not like Gabe. He really doesn’t even like him being around he wants him gone and doesn’t know why is mother married him. He has really strong dislike towards him. 3 Percy believes that his father really didn’t care for him since he didn’t stay around long enough to see him. Percy thinks that if his father really loved him he would have stayed. I think Percy loves his father but deep down inside there is a burden and he just doesn’t know what to believe. He really loves his father but doesn’t know he would do something like that to him. 4 Grover was explained to have the rest of his lower body being the body of a goat. Where his feet should have been there was cloven hooves no feet! Grover’s true identity proclaimed to be a goat witch is really creepy.

  23. Percy and ugliano are not in a good relationship because ugliano is rude to percy, he is “smelly”, and makes percy feel like punching him in the face. To me I think percy and ugliano are not in a good relationship. Percy’s mom doesn’t really care about this dude. Inside she doesn’t like him at all. Not one bit.
    Percy really still wants to be friends with grover. Even if he is a donkey from the waist down. He thinks that he treated him well at yankee academy. Even though grover told percy that he was watching over him he still wants to be close friends. In the story percy’s mom told him that she didn’t want to send him to that other school forever, but when they had been sleeping grover knocked on the door at midnight during a hurricane. So after the mom said that they were leaving. So percy packed his bags and went to the car with grover. When they got on the high waythey notice a big monster chaseing them…………………………..
    I think that percy really wanted to see his birth father. When his mother told him that he had left her when he was in her stomach , percy was mad.

  24. Percy and his mom have a good/bad relationship because Percy’s mom has to keep Percy away from herself. That’s because a lot of Greek god looking people. Percy doesn’t like his stepfather because he always had an attitude about every thing. Gabe’s nickname from Percy is, “smelly Gabe.” He thought that his dad wasn’t rich or nothing, he thought he was a poor kid. He didn’t know that his father was very important. I think Percy’s father is a Greek god because if he never showed up that can only mean one thing, he’s watching Percy from the sky.

    In chapter 3 Percy Jackson had a really good relationship with his mother. I know because, in chapter 3 Percy went home and him and his mom were going on a trip to Montauk beach. Percy was very excited that they were going to Montauk beach just him and his mom. That was their special place. But when it comes to tell everything he doesn’t tell about the ladies knitting or Ms. Dodds. Then they were having a great time until Percy asked about his birth dad. I think Percy and his mom have a really good relationship.
    Next is what Percy thinks of his stepfather. I think Percy hates is stepfather because, he called him smelly Gabe [page 30]. Also when Gabe wanted Percy to say sorry to him just for a little poker game. Then when Percy was sitting on the bed he said,” maybe if I kick you in your soft spot and makes you sing soprano for a week.” That sounds to me that he really hate his stepfather very very much. Also Percy made the screen door hit Gabe in the butt and made him fly up the stairs. But Percy had no idea how he did that. That’s what I think Percy thinks about his stepfather.
    The last thing is Grover turning into a boy/goat. When Grover comes the see Percy he had hoofs. Not feet also his legs were full of fur. Not regular human skin with small black hair. Then Percy understands stood the disease in Grover’s leg. It wasn’t really a disease it was his hoofs stuffed into humans fake foot. At first no one know the secret about Grover but now they know.

  26. Percy’s relationship with his mother is strange, but it’s how most people are with their parents. Percy’s mother loves him but it sort of seems like she doesn’t care about him too much. Whenever bad things happen Percy’s mother says she was being selfish about letting Percy be so close to her. She tries to do the things for his own good, which to Percy doesn’t seem like it.
    Percy hates his stepfather Gabe but Gabe doesn't exactly want to call him son yet either. Gabe gets mad that Percy interrupted his pocker game and then they start to argue and the fact that they kept going back and forth made Percy’s mother angry. Gabe was also rude to Percy’s mother yelling at her about the bean dip that he wanted her to make. Percy wondered why his mother put up with Gabe’s nonsense and why she was so eager to please him.
    Percy is very confident about his father he thinks that his father knew him since he was a baby, but when Percy’s mother tells him that his father didn’t now him. Percy feels so crushed.

  27. I think that Percy Jackson and his mothers relationship is very secretive because his mother was some type of hologram and she was hiding it form Percy all that time. She also didn’t let Percy know who he was and what was happening.

    I think Percy feels very disgusted with his stepfather. I think that Percy is really disgusted with his stepfather because his stepfather did a lot of things that Percy was not pleased with. Percy’s stepfather took money from Percy and he used it to pay for the money that he lots in a game of poker. He also stayed in Percy’s room while Percy was gone and he totally trashed Percy’s room.

    Percy believed that his birth father was a hero and had saved lots of people. On the other hand his mother told him that he went sailing and never returned. So he had taking it wrong because he thought that at first when she said something about a boat and he thought of war.

    Grover’s true identity surprised Percy but to Percy it all made since. It made since to Percy because Grover walked funny and shook a lot. So after a while he discovered that Grover was a goat.

  28. Percy is so close to his mother. At the beginning him and his mother aren’t so close. They weren’t close because he had to go somewhere far from her because he was a half blood. However he didn’t go far enough. There are these monsters or beast try to kill him and his friend Grover knows what is happening. Grover does not want to tell anything to Percy because the more he know the closer the beast are to him. Then he starts to spend more time with her and they start to get closer. In the middle of the night while the was sleeping at the cabin on the beach, Grover came knocking on the door, saying, “How dare you leave” That is when his mother gets a clue that Percy Jackson was in danger. She tells them to go to the car and lock the doors. They were heading to where Percy should have gone to in thefirst place. On the way their one of the beast come and is try to kill Percy. As the beast gets closer his mom tells him to jump out the car and run as fast as he cans. At this rate both of them are really close. He listens to her but the beast got closer to her she was outside of the car. When the beast finally catches up to her he grabs by the neck and squeezes her so hard, she vanishes. Percy lost his mother. Their relationship was so close but he doesn’t have much time with her.
    Percy had a stepfather named Gabe Ugliano. He didn’t really like him at all. He even had a nick name that wasn’t so nice it was Smelly Gabe. He didn’t ike him because every time he got home he will ask for money to gamble on a poker. He had way more reasons not to like him but these are the mane.
    Percy believes he have seen his father before but him mom told he he never did. His father left them when Sally was pregnant with Percy. Percy might be mad that he never seen his birth father. He might have goals or hopes to see his father in the future as well. He might not not be so mad because his father tried to protect him by trying to bring him to a farther place for his safety.
    Grover’s body is half goat and half goat. Grover has a little laugh and when Percy heard it over and over again he got a clue Grover was a goat. Grover was a goat at a school because he needed to watch Percy. He also needed to protected him from danger.

    Percy Jackson’s relationship with his mom isn’t really that great. She wants the best for Percy because she had a messed up life when she was a little kid, and she doesn’t want that to happen with him. She is very protective with her son, and she sacrificed her life for him by letting the giant bull thing kill her. I think that she made a right choice. I would definetly let my son or daughter live their life.

    Percy doesn’t really care about Gabe. All her wants to do is just play poker with his friends, and Percy doesn’t like it at all. The one thing that Percy thought of his father was that he left him, and Percy’s dad wasn’t even there for the birth. So Percy never had a chance to see his father. But one day he is going to see his father and he is going to be extremely excited.

    Grover’s true identity was that he was an animal from stomach down. The animal that he was was a goat. And he knew Percy’s mom but it was his first time ever meeting her in person.

  30. Percy Jackson and his mother have a very strong relationship. They are just like any other mother and son relationship. His mother always protects him no mater what. However Percy and Gil are another story. Percy HATES Gil’s stinky guts. At first Percy thinks his birth father was their when he was born. Then his mother told him that his father only thought his mother was exspecting a baby so he wasn’t there for the pregnetce. Later in the chapter when Percy and his mother was at the beach he saw Grover and he when they got in the car Percy noticed his best friend had goat legs.

  31. well first i think his relationship with Percy mom is very powerful because. when in chapter 7 he says he felt the same sense in his stomatc of when his mom told him something. well Percy feels very discosted with his stepfather because when he says that he dosent like him that he will pounch him in the privets. what Percy really thinks about his true father is that he died because he went on an a trip and never came back that his mom told him not to go. the real identety of grover is really a fun or a satyer.

  33. Chapter 3: Grover unexpectedly losses his pants. Jailene

    Percy has a very good relationship with they are very close to each other. I know that Percy has a very good relationship with hi smother because in chapter 3 Percy’s mother told him that they were going to go to a trip to Montauk beach I also say this because when Percy came back home from his school he missed his mother and he also said that he never wants to leave her. But Percy’s relationship with his stepfather is not so good because Gabe doesn’t like Percy and also Percy thinks that Gabe is not the right man for his mother because Gabe treats Percy’s mother like I she was his main or something and if Gabe would had been my stepfather I wouldn’t like him. But that the sometime Percy should be proud that Gabe is with his mother because Gabe was the one that was protecting Percy with his stinky smell. I would like to have Percy’s mother has my mother because she just wants the best for him.

  34. percy Jackson relationship with his mom is not that good because his mom has to send him to different schools. And it was because Percy had to stay away from her. So the demons would not found him.



    Percy feels bad for his mom because Gabe was in her life. Gabe was busy, always playing poker. And he did not smell that good. Percy did not have a good relationship with Gabe. And did not like him


    Percy believes that his father does not love him because his mom told him that his father left when Percy was about to be born. Percy was angry with his father for going on the ocean voyage and not coming back to see him

  36. I think that percy has a good relationship because he is always helping her with the house and telling her good things.

    I think that percy hates gabe because he is so aggie he stink and he always thinks he is the man of the house .he always say to his mom were is my dip and then he goes plays poker with his friends and drinks liquor.

    I think that he believes that his dad is some type of weirdo or god because she says he went out lost at the seas. So percy probably thinks that he is a pirate or fish.

  37. I think that Percy&his mothers relationship is calm. But its wierd because his stepfather Gabe seems jelous because he dosen't like Percy. And his stepfather says he is going to call the police on Percy for no intire reason. They are always fighting and thats what changes Percy&his mothers relationship.

  39. The relationship between Percy and his mother is very hard to explain. This is hard to explain because him and his mother were always being separated and his mother really could not enjoy being around because Percy would be in danger. Percy and his mother’s relationship was also a loving, caring, yet painful bond. I say the relationship is loving and caring because any time he can be near his mother they both are happy and connected but also as happy as they are they still have a piece missing from them knowing that Percy is in danger.
    When it come down to the way Percy feels about his stepfather Gabe is horrible. There relationship is very, very bad Gabe hates Percy and Percy hates Gabe. They really do not like each other because of the fact that Gabe blames every misfortune they have on Percy. And Percy dose not like the fact that Gabe is a smelly old man who mistreats his mother and Percy loves his mother too much to let her live this way wile he off being disruptive in school. Percy wants to love his father but from the story his mother told him he has a lot of trouble doing that. Percy also has a lot of trouble believing the fact that his father abandon him before he was born, so now that Percy knows that his father didn’t even get to see him makes it even harder to try and love some who dose not even know him. Percy’s best friend Grover is a half goat half boy. He has hairy legs and is able to talk to other animals.
