Just don’t tell her dad…

How do you bring a statue to life? Tim and Zoe think they know. If only Jason would help and someone didn’t keep looking at them like flies in a web. Juicy, wriggly, yummy– Enough, Arachne! Oh well, at least the time-travelling vase is in good hands. Well, god hands. The god of thieves and liars’ hands. Uh oh…
- Problems with Pythagoras
Tim Baker’s got problems: he’s failing maths, banished from Ancient Greece, and confused about what to call Mum’s new boyfriend. What makes a good father anyway? Is it strength, courage and - Strength! Is it attractiveness? Wisdom? Intelligence? Does it have anything to do with beans? Let the Labours of Larry/Mr Green begin!

Why is Tim’s picture on an ancient oil flask at the British Museum? Is Hera planning to trap him with it? How? When? Tim needs a god who can see the future … I said A GOD WHO CA –And I said no autographs! Only one thing’s certain: with puking punks, pomegranate grenades and possible butterfly tornadoes, it’s about to get chaotic.

All Tim wanted was advice on keeping his model boat afloat, but when Zoe is injured, only Jason and the Argonut can help him to save her. Loose the sail, little bro! Here’s no joyriding allowed, but with bronze men and Grey Women – not to mention an old wind bag to deal with, Tim’s still got that sinking feeling…
- Circe’s beastly feast
It could be Tim’s last time in Ancient Greece, but instead of saying goodbye, he’s busy trading song titles with Apollo, delivering a package to Narcissus, escaping from Hera and– Holy moly! –making a pig of himself at Circe’s table. Meanwhile his friends have forgotten who he is, so who will save him when it all goes wrong, wrong, wrong?
- Odysseus’ Trojan Trick!
Agatha has been taken prisoner and it’s up to Tim and friends to save her. But how? They’d have to trick Hera, sneak into her fortress, past her army – it seems impossible! Impossible? Did I say it was impossible when–Okay, Odysseus, but Hera’s soldiers are armed to the teeth, tempers are hot, and who ever heard of a Trojan Peacock?
- Hades’ Pet Hellhound
What the Hades? Tim’s used to solo time-travel but now there’s a `friend’ along for the ride. I’ll get you for this, Cinderella! When things go south after some bird spotting, Tim has to avoid being burnt alive, eaten alive or dead alive. But the Underworld is full of dangers, and the local music isn’t exactly lifting his spirits.
- Time’s Up Tim
Breaking news: Hera is loose in the modern day and giving London an Ancient Greek makeover. That is until her son arrives to steal her thunder. Did someone say thunder? Tim’s final adventure is an A to Z of Olympic family drama, and all he has to help is a box he can’t open. Where curiosity was Pandora’s weakness, can hope bring our hero strength?
