Synopsis

Hercules on the Bayou by Connie Morgan

In a Cajun reimagining of the Hercules legend, battles with a twelve-clawed crawfish and the taming of a raging hurricane stir together myth, culture, and Louisiana spice. Sent down to the hot and humid bayou from his kingdom in the clouds as a baby, 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 features vibrant and whimsical illustrations and humorous allusions to classic mythology. Written by an award-winning children's educator, this adventure will have you shouting Aiyee! from start to finish.
