Children's Homer by Padraic Colum. A classic retelling that combines the
stories from Homer's Iliad and Odyssey into one exciting, heroic tale that
introduces children to Greek mythology.
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 Cycl˘pes. Using
narrative threads from The Iliad and The Odyssey, Padraic Colum weaves a
stunning adventure with all the drama and power that Homer intended.
Paper, 256 pages. Ages 10-14.
