Synopsis

What begins as just another ordinary day for Demon ends up being far from normal ...because travelling on a rainbow to Mount Olympus is a bit odd for anyone, even if your dad is the Greek god Pan! When his long-lost father appears and takes him to the kingdom of the gods to look after their mythical beasts, Demon is in for a shock. The stables are full of creatures like an ill Hydra, flatulent Cattle of the Sun and a very grumpy Griffin. All Demon's animal husbandry skills, polished on his mother's farm on Earth, are going to be put to a rather exacting test as he tries to sort out the chaos and neglect and at the same time deal with the upset and concern of the gods. Can the eleven-year-old stableboy help the Nemean lion that Heracles has hurt, and avoid incurring Hera's wrath if he can't heal her pet Hydra ...The first in a delightful action-packed four-book series, acclaimed writer Lucy Coats uses her original and funny voice to bring to life the gods, goddesses and mythical beasts of the ancient Greek pantheon.
