Life hasn't been easy since Tim's dad died - the kids at school call him Cinderella because he's always stuck at home doing the housework while his mum's out working to support them. But when Hercules unexpectedly turns up in his living room, life starts to get a whole lot more interesting! Super-strong, but not so super-smart, Hercules sets out to help him. Things quickly go south and Tim is left picking up the pieces. How do you convince a hero that you don't need his help?Gormless Gods and Hapless Heroes is a fun-filled series about Greek mythology, adventure and what it means to be a hero. Readers aged 6+ will love diving into the world of Tim Baker and his (sort of) friend Hercules. Great for fans of Who Let The Gods out and the Percy Jackson series.

Review quote

"A funny book that would be appreciated by lovers of Wimpy Kid... Middle Grade age kids would really enjoy this, the illustrations are amusing and I like the way that most of them are cartoon like with Hercules still keeping the black silhouette that he had on the vase. Great fun for younger readers." - Bev Humphrey, NetGalley "An excellent introduction to the Ancient Greek Gods. I thoroughly enjoyed this children's story in which young Tim Baker inadvertently releases Hercules from his entrapment in an Ancient Greek vase." - Graham McGhie, NetGalley

About Stella Tarakson

Stella graduated with a law degree, but writing was always her passion. Before long, she left her 'sensible' job and plunged into the world of publishing. She has now written over 30 books. As the daughter of Greek immigrants, Stella was steeped in Greek mythology, and she uses her love of Greece in her books. Nick Roberts was born in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, and moved to Somerset when he was five years old. He turned the art studio at his school into his second home, and qualified with a BA Hons in graphic design from Bristol Polytechnic in 1986. His most memorable project has been the branding of the European Youth Olympics in Bath. Nick moved back to Somerset to set up a home studio in 2007.
