9780892367849: Strong Stuff: Herakles and His Labors

Herakles was one of the greatest of all Greek heroes, and his exploits have been celebrated in paintings, songs, poetry, and sculpture for thousands of years. Now it's time for him to have his own children's book, one devoted exclusively to his labors and adventures.
Written by John Harris and illustrated by artist Gary Baseman, Strong Stuff tells the amazing stories of the Stymphalian Birds (defeated by crashing cymbals), creepy King Geryon (with three heads AND three bodies), the Augean Stables (don't ask), and nine other labors that Herakles performed. This is a one-of-a-kind account of the great mythological hero in action.

Stong stuff!

With a super-helpful map and a pronunciation guide for those sometimes-hard-to-pronounce classical names.

About the Author:


John Harris is senior editor at Getty Publications. He is the author of Greece! Rome! Monsters! Gary Baseman is the three-time Emmy and BAFTA award-winning creator of the animated series and film Teacher's Pet. Dumb Luck, a book of his art, was published in 2004.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. The author of Greece! Rome! Monsters! (2002) offers another irreverent look at the ancient world in this recap of Herakles'labors, or "super-difficult jobs." Harris maintains an infectious tongue-in-cheek tone while still adhering to the traditional myths in each brief account. On Herakles'slaying of the Hydra, for example, Harris writes, "It's really tough, if not impossible, to kill an immortal head," and he describes Cerberus, the ferocious, three-headed guard dog to the underworld, as "a handful." Emphatic words and phrases such as "disgusting!" and "freaked out" enliven the text even more. Animator Baseman contributes wildly colored, energetic cartoon paintings of the "original he-man" and his monster foes as well as a map of ancient Greece, which is printed on the book's endpapers. Hilarious and instantly accessible, these are winning selections for children encountering the myths for the first time and for those with some familiarity. Older students may want to use these as models for their own retellings of fairy tales, myths, and classic lore. Gillian Engberg
