Greece is in trouble

How can 10-year-old

Crib save the country?

Crib's uncle Jonathan decides to be the new Hercules, but he has just lost a battle with a tiny dog. There's no chance he will defeat an enormous lion, a terrifying bull or a furious boar. Ten-year-old Crib is determined to help.

The plot

What happens on the journey?

Greece is in trouble. Monsters that Hercules once destroyed have returned. How can 10-year-old Crib save the country as Hercules did? Can Crib save Athens Airport from the attacks of large and murderous birds?
A huge boar is destroying the countryside and a deer is eating the farmers’ crops. In Crete, a bull is so terrifying that people hardly dare leave their houses. Can Crib solve the problems? – and without harming the beasts, for the Prime Minister wants them in a theme park. Hercules persuaded an Amazon Queen to give up her golden girdle – can Crib do the same? And can she outwit a hundred-headed dragon, so she can pick the golden apples? She descends into the underworld and meets the monstrous three-headed-dog Cerberus. Can she charm him into leaving the underworld to become a tourist attraction that will draw visitors back to Greece? And can she do all this when her uncle Jonathan keeps interfering?
