Hercules on the Bayou, Hardback Book

Hercules on the Bayou Hardback

Illustrated by Herb Leonhard


Hercules faces his biggest challenge yet-the Louisiana swamps!

Including battles with a twelve-clawed crawfish and the taming of a raging hurricane, this Cajun reimagining of the Hercules legend stirs together myth, culture, and Louisiana spice.

Sent down to the hot and humid bayou from his kingdom in the clouds, Hercules must perform four daring labors to escape the immortal queen's wrath.

Luckily, Hercules has godlike strength, bravery, and his new bayou family to help him conquer every incredible feat!

This pourquois tale is told in the style of a gentle Cajun storyteller and features vibrant and whimsical illustrations.

Written by an award-winning children's educator, this adventure will have you shouting "Aiyee!" from start to finish.
