A story with a Greek twist!


Main Plot

This story centres around a boy called Tim. Tim accidently breaks his mum's Greek vase which has a picture of Heracles fighting a bull. Immediately, Tim gets a special and rather peculiar visitor arrive in his life. This visitor turns out to be a Greek demi- god. Surely, this would be good thing for Tim, however many unfortunate events occur. A dog being mistaken for a hound of hell, a wrestle with a tiger skin rug and an interesting way of getting rid of weeds, these are all things which happen in the story. 



Our views on the book


"It makes you laugh at loud at some of the things Hercules does."


"I like how it makes reference to the legend of Heracles throughout the book."


"There were many cliff hangers which made us want to read on."
