It’s my turn today to share with you my thoughts on Here Comes Hercules, book one in the Hopeless Heroes series. For this blog tour, myself and fellow bloggers will be sharing our reviews, featuring guest posts from the author Stella Tarakson and answering tag questions.
Before I share my thoughts here is a little bit about Here Comes Hercules.
When Tim Baker breaks his mum’s favourite vase, it’s the least of his problems. The Greek hero he’s released is in danger of doing far worse. To the flowers, the rug—Oh, no! Not the kitchen!
Hercules is only trying to be helpful but he’s just hopeless. It’s time to send this dim demigod home before Tim becomes ancient history.
When I was at school, I loved learning everything about Greek Mythology and this is a great book to start with for kids. Full of great illustrations and a fun story, I’m sure it will appeal to children of around 8-12 years. It’s book one of a ten part series, so lots more fun to be had!
Hercules is an invisible nightmare when he gets released from the vase. He causes havoc everywhere in a hilarious way, but he and Tim come up with a plan to thwart Tim’s Bully and this makes me warm to him. Poor Tim is having a rough time trying to keep his mum together – she’s a struggling writer.
Here is the blog tour schedule for the other bloggers on the Hopeless Heroes tour.
