Synopsis

Mini Myths Play Nice, Hercules! by Joan Holub

Hercules is not as interested in playing nice as he is in playing strong! But when one feat of strength destroys his little sister's 12-piece tower, he must use his powers for good to restore the tower and seek her forgiveness. She forgives him indeed and then shows her own strength by gleefully knocking down the stacked blocks herself! Leslie Patricelli's famously humorous illustrations bring a playful narrative to Joan Holub's carefully crafted text. This book, along with Pandora, launches the Mini Myths, a series of mythologically-inspired modern-day parables in board book form, featuring a read-aloud summary of the Greek myth at the very end.
