Follow Hermes on 100 unforgettable journeys through the world of Greek mythology

Hermes is determined to have adventures from the very moment of his unusual birth. With his tumbling brown curls and cheerful fearlessness, he charms his fellow gods: mighty Apollo, mournful Artemis, beautiful Aphrodite, and even the king of the immortals himself, Zeus.
Carried by his winged sandals, Hermes travels all over his magical world, full of fearsome monsters and terrible battles, but never forgets to have fun along the way...
"No one does derring-do like the ancients... Charming" Observer

"For the Greeks, Hermes was the god not only of thieves but also of lucky finds, and I'm going to count this fun-packed picaresque adventure novel as one of my own luckiest finds" Paul Cartledge, author of The Spartans
