Hercules wants to be famous forever and the only way to do that is to complete the tasks the King sets him. The tasks won't be easy; in fact, Hercules will have to face some of the most terrifying and dangerous creatures that live on earth – and in hell! Join Hercules as he wrestles a man-eating lion, tricks the god Atlas, and tries to kidnap Hades' ferocious guard dog.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This series of books have been a big hit with my lower ability readers and children with EAL. It has been so refreshing to find high-interest reading books that are filled with great vocabulary to get our teeth into. - Natalie Rogers, Year 6 teacher and Writing Lead

This fabulous Dyslexia friendly mini-series is the perfect accompaniment to any topic on mythology. The perfect way to extend children’s knowledge around topics they are learning in class in an easy to access grown-up looking format. I love that the text is broken up by pictures and is spaced well, meaning they are more accessible to those who struggle with larger chunks of text whilst still looking to all intents and purposes like the friends they are helping. The fact these books are printed on yellow paper further increases their accessibility. - Starlight and Stories, starlightandstories.com

Benjamin Hulme-Cross does a great job of concisely retelling each of these gripping adventures. Aimed at children of 10+ with a reading age of 8+, these classic stories are compelling reads, full of action. There are wonderful illustrations throughout each book from Alessia Trunfio which add to the atmosphere of each story. - North Somerset Teachers' Book Award Blog
