An ancient Greek myth
Hermes was only a few days old when he climbed out of his crib and went running off by himself. How that boy could run!
Hermes & Apollo
From the day he was born, Zeus knew Hermes was going to be a lot of fun.
Hermes thought it would be rather funny to steal Apollo’s cows.
Hermes & Apollo
While he was out adventuring, Hermes spotted some cows. They were Apollo’s cows! Apollo was his big brother.
Apollo would not know which way to look for his missing cows.
Hermes & Apollo
Hermes had the best idea! He padded the cattle’s feet and made them walk backwards to confuse the trail.
Hermes & Apollo
All that work made the baby Hermes very hungry.

He invented fire and cooked one of Apollo’s cows for lunch.
On the way home, Hermes spotted a tortoise shell.
Hermes & Apollo
That gave Hermes an idea!
Hermes decided to bring all the cows home in case he got hungry again. The cows mooed musically as they ambled along.
Hermes & Apollo
When he got home, Hermes made the first lyre out of the tortoise shell and string.

He was playing his new musical instrument when Apollo found him.

Hermes & Apollo
To make amends, Hermes gave Apollo his tortoise shell lyre.
