Beasts of Olympus: Beast Keeper
Publisher: Piccadilly Press
Demon is chatting to the chickens when his dad arrives. Demon has never met Pan before, so the goat-legged, curly-horned, yellow-eyed god, ruler of all forests and wild creatures, is quite a surprise. Pan takes Demon to Mount Olympus by magic rainbow and installs him in the stinky Stables of the Gods as trainee stable boy.
Finding a new skin for the Nemean Lion is just one of Demon's dangerous assignments but when Hera commands him to bring her pet Hydra back to life, Demon is flummoxed. None of his magic helps to revitalise the Hydra's nine severed heads…
A funny, accessible, adventurous introduction to characters and stories from ancient Greece, starring an endearing hero faced with impossible tasks.
