Young readers will be spellbound by the story of Hercules, the legendary hero of heroes whose name is synonymous with strength and adventure. The immortal strongman narrates a gripping tale that begins with his birth to a mortal woman admired by Zeus and concludes with his ascension to the glorious halls of Olympos.
With great pride, Hercules relates the spectacular deeds by which he achieved immortality. His twelve labors under the command of King Eurystheus are recounted in thrilling detail, including duels with such fabulous monsters as the many-headed, fire-breathing hydra and the man-eating mares of King Diomedes. Encounters with Hippolyte, Queen of the Amazons, Cerberos, the hellhound sentry of the underworld, and many other characters from mythology recreate a timeless world of excitement and adventure.
