Journey back to ancient Greece and meet the greatest hero who ever lived--Hercules! With eleven difficult tasks behind him, he now must face the last and most terrifying. To bring back the three-headed monster dog, Cerberus, Hercules must enter the Underworld--where the dead go--and come back alive! With a bold storytelling voice, Robert Burleigh takes the reader into the classical world of Greek mythology and reveals the courage and valor of this larger-than-life hero. Award-winning illustrator Raul Colón's dazzling artwork imbues this classical story with magic and power.
