Colum, Padraic; Moser, Barry (Illustrator); Glassman, Peter (Contribution by)

Here is the perfect introduction to The Iliad and The Odyssey, two of the cornerstones of Western literature. All of the glories of Homer's world--from the mysterious Wooden Horse to Helen, whose beauty launched a thousand ships, to the fearsome one-eyed Cyclops--are here, refashioned into one seamless tale of adventure by three-time Newbery Honor winner Padraic Colum. Beautifully enhanced by Barry Moser's twelve bold, evocative color plates, this handsome book will stir the imagination of young and old alike.


A retelling of the events of the Trojan War and the wanderings of Odysseus based on Homer's Iliad and Odyssey.
