The Labours of Heracles

The complete 'Labours of Heracles' told through over 100 full colour cartoon illustrations.

Written and illustrated by Gareth Pitchford, this new version of the popular Greek myth features all of Heracles' famous labours.

Known to the Romans as Hercules, Heracles was the 'hero of heroes', the most famous adventurer of them all.


'The Labours of Heracles' teaching pack has been designed to help Key Stage 2 primary school teachers deliver objectives on myths and legends in the National Literacy Strategy.

The story is presented in an easy to understand way with simple text and eight cartoon pictures for each of Heracles' tasks. The teacher's guide contains additional information about each of the labours and also highlights the many differences between versions of this story.

The teaching pack contains printable versions of the book, a presentation of the story for use on interactive whiteboards (or with a data projector), a teacher's guide and support sheets.
