    My favourite myth is the story of The Many Tasks Of Hercules because he can strangle 2 snakes at the same time. But he didn’t know his own strength as a child. His father was Zeus who was King of all the gods. He wasn’t told that if he tried these 12 tasks he could die. He thought he would get a place in heaven as a god if he did them all.

    I like your explanation of the Hercules story Milo. I particularly like the way you have told us a bit about the story but not given away whether he completes all the tasks – it will make people who haven’t read it want to find a copy! Or perhaps you could re tell some of it for us? Thanks for letting me know about the web link – it was working earlier in the week but it seems to have gone offline. I’ve removed it from my post now.
