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. Bloomsbury High Low books encourage and support reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate and illustrated stories for struggling and reluctant readers, those with dyslexia, or those with English as an additional language (EAL). With bonus bits at the back of the book, including reading notes and exciting facts, these are perfect for sparking discussion and engaging young readers. Printed on tinted paper with a dyslexia-friendly font, Hercules is aimed at readers aged 10+ and has a manageable length (96 pages) and reading age (8+). Produced in association with reading experts at Catch Up, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties. Catch Up offers intervention programmes proven to significantly improve the achievement of learners who find literacy or numeracy difficult. Book Band: Brown Ideal for ages 10+ with a reading age of 8+

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 *
