My Hero, Hercules (Tales of Ancient Lands series)

By Galloway, Patricia

Toronto: Annick Press, 1975. "Hercules is cursed at his birth by Hera. Zeus's jealous wife resents the prediction that Zeus's half-mortal son would be a "king of kings" with remarkable strength. Jason, a ten-year-old motherless mortal, believes his life is cursed by his cowardly, weak father, Tellus. They live in a village where strength is valued over intellect. Although Jason greedily devours his father's stories of Hercules, he finds transcriber Tellus' passion for history and all other stories pathetic. Skinny like his father, Jason's greatest desire is to be like his hero, Hercules. When a fire ignites the house, a panicked Tellus chooses to protect his transcriber's hands rather than douse the blaze, and as a result, loses his life. Perhaps it is because Jason is the same age as Hercules' dead son, that the god in the heavens responds to Jason's mournful pleas and offerings. Hercules visits Jason and takes him on visual journeys through episodes of his past, filled with bravery, blood ... and evidence of Hercules' unthinking, violent temper. After Hercules returns to the heavens, he sends Jason one last test, to determine whether Jason is worthy to travel with him. Jason searches for a token of Hercules' time on earth, with a clue from his Grandfather. He labors in a field for a year, growing in strength and stamina, before he uncovers one of Hercules' old battle arrows. As a reward, Hercules takes Jason with him on a death-defying adventure. Together, they face the many challenges posed by King Eurystheus: Hercules and Jason skin the Nemean lion, battle the many-headed watersnake of Hydra, capture the elusive, beautiful white deer of Cerynia, and defy Herz's immortal trickery. Over time, Jason grows inbravery, as well as in compassion; he helps to save Hercules' life, and comes to see his father Tellus more justly." . Soft Cover. New.

Gods Behaving Badly

By Phillips, Marie

Toronto: Randon House Canada, 2007. "Being immortal isn't all it's cracked up to be. Life's hard for a Greek god in the 21st century: nobody believes in you any more, even your own family doesn't respect you, and you're stuck in a delapidated hovel in north London with too many siblings and not enough hot water. But for Artemis (goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator) and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic) there's no way out. Until a meek cleaner and her would-be boyfriend come into their lives, and turn the world literally upside down. Gods Behaving Badly is that rare thing, a charming, funny, utterly original first novel that satisfies the head and the heart. ". 1st Can Ed. Hard Cover. As New/As New.

Venus : The Lonely Goddess

By Erskine,John

New York: William Morrow, 1949. "A deliciously provocative tale .... Venus was a late-comer among the Olympian gods, and her origins were shrouded in mystery. Some said she had risen from the sea, but there was no certainty about it. As the young wife of Vulcan, she came to as human a family of gods as you're likely to meet. Enjoying their transitory godhead, they were little interested in such weighty matters as Progress and Reform, and among then Vulcan was the only one who ever did any work. Venus started out as an exemplary daughter-in-law - ignoring Juno's feline suspicion of her youth and beauty; meeting Jupiter's double entendres with trusting innocence; and inspiring friendship in the roguish heart of Mars....Here are polished wit and a wicked use of humor for ulterior motives - Ambrosia sprinkled with Attic salt.".. 1st US Ed.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Good with slight chips & Tear. Illus. by Warren Chappell.
