Hercules: The Twelve Labors
(Yearling, Oct. 13, 1998)
Hercules, the revered hero-god of Greek mythology, achieves fame and glory through his famous Twelve Labors. Among them, he kills Hydra, a multiheaded, man-eating monster; wrestles the savage lion of Nemea; and destroys the fearsome Birds of Stymphalia. Not once does Hercules flinch as he faces his monstrous opponents, and not once does he experience defeat. Hercules is a shining example of true valor.
