I believe the book, "Get To Work Hercules!" is a great book for kids who want to read about greek mythology because it helps you learn a lot about greek myths, but puts it in a way that helps children understand it and puts it in a more modern setting. Kate framed the character's description in a way that makes it easy for a child's mind to grasp and fully comprehend. This book is a great mythological book for kids, everything is framed in a way that makes it easy to read. All in all, I would definitely reccomend this book to a younger child.The book "Get to Work, Hercules!" is a twist on a classic Greek myth, with some modern parts thrown into it. The book is about how two minions steal Hercules as a baby. In the original myth, it was Hades who told two minions to steal Hercules, but in the book, Hades is Hercules' uncle. The name of Hercules was given to him by his mortal mom, Princess Alcmene. Hera was his step-mom. Hera hated Hercules because she hated all of Zeus's ex-wives. The name "Hercules" comes from the name "Heracles" which comes from the name Hera. Hercules' mom was hoping that Hera would like him more for being named after her. He then stayed with a farmer and his wife, they had plenty of cows and lots of work for him to do. When Hercules became eighteen, he was given two choices; the easy path and the hard path. The easy path consisted of good wines and cheese, no work, and an easy life. The hard path consisted of endless labor, hardly any food, and a hard life. He chose the hard path, and explained that he had been able to have cheese his whole life. He then set off on his journey. He first visited a psychic, she told him that he was to see King Eurythasis. He was astonished! Eury was his old childhood friend, but his mother had made him move away, for Hercules had caused him injuries while playing games, on accident, of course. But, he went anyways and asked for his first out of 12 labors. They were all supposed to be impossible to fulfill. One labor was to clean the stalls of flesh-eating horses, another was to bring back the hydra from a lagoon; it had poisonous breath. After all of the labors were completed, Hercules went to Zeus and asked if he could now become a god. Zeus said, "No" because he had to complete a selfless task. Hercules then decided to start slaying monsters. One day, he did earn his status as a god, but he refused as he wanted to live with all of his new found friends in the human world.
