Within the Children’s Homer: The Adventures of Odysseus and The Tale of Troy find Adventure. Mystery. Mythology. Monsters. A Hero.
Travel back to a mythical time when Achilles, aided by the gods, waged war against the Trojans. And join Odysseus on his journey through murky waters, facing obstacles like the terrifying Scylla and whirring Charybdis, the beautiful enchantress Circe, and the land of the raging Cyclôpes.
Using narrative threads from The Iliad and The Odyssey, Padraic Colum weaves a stunning adventure with all the drama and power that Homer intended, but in a child-friendly version for kids 10 years and older.
These collections of myths and legends of the ancient world by the late Newbery Honor winner, poet, and playwright are now available with beautiful new cover art.
