Hercules is not as interested in “playing nice” as he is in playing strong! But when one feat of strength destroys his little sister’s 12-piece tower, he must use his powers for good to restore the tower and seek her forgiveness. She forgives him indeed, and then shows her own strength by gleefully knocking down the stacked blocks herself! Joan Holub’s expertly focused text pairs perfectly with Leslie Patricelli’s famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Hercules’s Twelve Labors myth at the end. Praise for Mini-Myths: Play Nice, Hercules! "These adorable volumes feature the title characters learning important life lessons with slight allusions to their Greek mythology counterparts." --School Library Journal

There is more material available on Herakles than any other Greek god or hero. His story has many more episodes than those of other heroes, concerning his life and death as well as his battles with myriad monsters and other opponents. In literature, he appears in our earliest Greek epic and lyric poetry, is reinvented for the tragic and comic stage, and later finds his way into such unlikely areas as philosophical writing and love poetry. In art, his exploits are amongst the earliest identifiable mythological scenes, and his easily-recognisable figure with lionskin and club was a familiar sight throughout antiquity in sculpture, vase-painting and other media. He was held up as an ancestor and role-model for both Greek and Roman rulers, and widely worshipped as a god, his unusual status as a hero-god being reinforced by the story of his apotheosis. Often referred to by his Roman name Hercules, he has continued to fascinate writers and artists right up to the present day. In Herakles, Emma Stafford has successfully tackled the ‘Herculean task’ of surveying both the ancient sources and the extensive modern scholarship in order to present a hugely accessible account of this important mythical figure. Covering both Greek and Roman material, the book highlights areas of consensus and dissent, indicating avenues for further study on both details and broader issues. Easy to read, Herakles is perfectly suited to students of classics and related disciplines, and of interest to anyone looking for an insight into ancient Greece’s most popular hero.

The gods, heroes, and monsters of Greek mythology come wondrously alive in this second volume of Bernard Evslin’s award-winning series Book two of Bernard Evslin’s extraordinary work opens with the story of Hercules, the strongest man on Earth. Son of a mortal woman and Zeus, feared and hated by Zeus’s wife, Hera, Hercules is condemned to twelve labors in which he must fight the world’s most terrifying monsters. It seems that the world’s mightiest hero may have met his match against the Hydra, a beast with one hundred heads that spew lethal poison. Other tales feature Atlas, the Titan condemned to bear the world on his shoulders; the hideous gorgon Medusa, who turns men to stone; the half-man, half-bull Minotaur; the Sphinx; and many more. Greek myths come to thrilling life in these timeless stories of love and revenge, sorcery and enchantment, in which gods and demigods, mortals, fiends, and demons battle between good and evil. It is a world where bushes become bears, the four winds go to war, and the Nemean Lion and giant crab Cancer strike terror into the hearts of all.
