Percy Jackson series, deepening their interest in reading and engaging their imaginations.

The ten-book collection follows Tim Baker, a young boy who time-travels and meets the legendary Greek Gods. Join Tim as he encounters challenges, meets the Gods, and navigates through life's adventures. This series is excellent for young readers, bringing historical figures to life as modern-day heroes. 

Children need to read books with famous characters that excite them and encourage them to return to reading regularly. With these recognisable and engaging characters, humorous situations, and daring rescue missions, readers will also meet Tim's family and friends, who support him, making each book a delight to read and re-read. Children will adore this collection for its vibrant covers and illustrations, and parents will also appreciate the side-splitting storylines and the introduction of critical real-life emotions.

Hopeless Heroes is the perfect transition for children moving from picture books to more text-heavy reading, with longer paragraphs and complex sentences. Dive into a collection that makes reading fun and supports children's development.

Here Comes Hercules

Hercules, the bravest of all, is here to make your day brighter! Join Tim as he accidentally breaks his mum's favourite vase and unwittingly unleashes Hercules. Unfortunately, this Greek hero is a let down and not very helpful, even though he aims to be. It's a race against time to send this dim demigod home before Tim becomes ancient history!

Hera's Terrible Trap

Now, a self-admiring hero gets trapped with Tim and an army of peacocks. Tim thought his adventures were over until he found himself in this pickle, travelling to Ancient Greece via a stolen vase. Put that mirror down, Theseus! Thankfully, Tim's new friend Zoe is there to help; just don't tell her dad!

Arachne Golden Gloves

Can you bring a statue to life? Tim and Zoe thought they could. Now, they're dealing with flies and spiderwebs. At least the time-travelling vase is in good hands, right? Entrusted to the god of thieves; oh, never mind.

Problems with Pythagoras

Tim is not only failing maths but also banished from Ancient Greece and unsure what to call his mother's boyfriend. How will he navigate these troubles, and what does it take to be a good father, strength or courage? Let's find out, shall we?

Apollo's Mystic Message

Imagine discovering that an artefact you own is now in the British Museum! Tim's ancient oil flask ended there, and Hera might be setting a trap. Who can help Tim look into the future and discover what's next?

Jason's Wild Winds!

Tim needs advice on keeping his model boat afloat. With Zoe injured, only Jason and the Argonauts can help. Brace yourself for an adventurous ride to save Zoe. Shall we join them on this epic journey in a boat with little to no space?

Circe's beastly feast

What would you do if it were your last time in Ancient Greece? While you might say goodbye, Tim is busy trading song titles with Apollo, dodging Hera, and trying to remind his friends of who he is. With everything going wrong, who will save Tim?

Odysseus’ Trojan Trick!

Now it's Agatha who needs rescuing after being taken prisoner. Tim and his friends must outsmart Hera. Can they sneak into her fortress with a plan as cunning as the Trojan horse, or in this case, the Trojan peacock?

Hades' Pet Hellhound

On yet another adventure, Tim finds himself in the underworld, a place as dangerous as it is gloomy. Can he escape the clutches of Hades' hellhound without getting burned or eaten? Dive into the underworld's mysteries with Tim and find out!

Time's Up Tim

HERA IS ON THE LOOSE in London, giving it an Ancient Greek makeover! But Tim's final adventure includes a showdown with her thunder-stealing son. Join us for a dramatic conclusion to this Greek family drama.
