Everyone knows who Hercules is. But how many of us really know his story, with its twists and turns, its wondrous triumphs, and its aching tragedy?

Human son of the great Zeus, Hercules is the strongest man alive. But when he is tricked by the jealous goddess Hera into committing a horrible crime of rage, he must make amends through fulfilling a series of frightful tasks. Here are the stories of how he faces the manyheaded Hydra, battles the fierce Nemean Lion, and braves the depths of hell itself.

Irresistible adventure from England’s most honored author of books for young readers!

"It's one thing to read the story of Hercules and his 12 labors. It's another thing entirely to listen to this stellar full-cast production of McCaughrean's re-envisioning of the classic Greek tale of loss and redemption. The narrators give raw emotion to every line ... the performance builds to a dramatic and pitch-perfect conclusion ... those experiencing Hercules for the first time will be bowled over by the sheer energy and power of the production."
    — Audiofile April, 2010    Read entire review…
"From Hercules' birth to his immortalization in the stars, Geraldine McCaughrean adds humanity and beautiful language to her retelling of the Greek myth . . . Each member of the cast brings a unique flavor and character interpretation to the recording. A musical refrain divides the chapters and completes this polished production."
    — School Library Journal February, 2010
Praise for the print version of Hercules:
"Such vivid writing will hold the attention of anyone already interested in these ageless legends, and teachers could well ignite students' appetites for the tales by reading passages aloud. A strong addition to the series."
    — School Library Journal
