Beasts Of Olympus: Beast Keeper

Author: Lucy Coats

Part of a series: Beasts of Olympus

Publisher: Piccadilly Press (2015)

A boy is reunited with his long-lost father, the Greek god Pan, only to find himself taken to the kingdom of the gods. 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 he arrives, Demon is in for a shock. The stables are full of mythical beasts like the 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 deal with the upset and concern of the gods. Can the stableboy help the Nemean lion that Heracles has hurt, and avoid incurring Hera's wrath if he can't heal her pet Hydra . . .
