The book is a collection of myth stories that people have told over many years. Stories like Mulan, The Lambton Worm, Icarus and Hercules The Hero.

My favourite story is Hercules The Hero. He performed many impossible tasks for King Eurystheus (In Greece he was called Herakles) Task 1: Killing the Neamean Lion. Task 2: Slaying the 9 headed Lernean Hydra. Task 3: Capturing the Arcadian Stag. Task 4: Ensnaring the Gargantuan Wild Boar. Task 5: Cleaning the stables of King Augeas. Task 6: Hunting the Flesh-Eating Stymphalian Birds. Task 7: Taming the Fearsome Cretan Bull. Task 8: Stealing the Flesh-Eating Mares of Diomedes. Task 9: Pinching the belt of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Task 10: Stealing the cattle from the 3 bodied monster, Geryon. Task 11: Stealing Golden Apples from the garden of Hesperides. Task 12: Capturing Cerberus, the 3-headed dog of Hades.

That’s how Hercules became a God, but he was still a Demi-God (means half human half God).
