Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-6. This fully illustrated, large-format book tells the life story of Hercules, concentrating on the 12 tasks he performed for King Eurystheus. Unlike other recent books on the Greek hero, this account does not ignore or merely list some of the adventures, but devotes a chapter to each of the feats, known collectively as the 12 labors of Hercules. Colorful and quite stylized, the illustrations are decorative and at times dramatic, if rather cold. They tend to disengage readers' sympathies from Hercules, while the text has the opposite effect. A good choice for mythology collections. --Carolyn Phelan"
