Overview

"Unequaled" Rewriting of Homer for Children. Padraic Colum's retelling of Homer's classic epics for children is still considered by many to be the finest introduction younger readers will have to Homer. Combining the broad stories of both the Iliad and the Odyssey, Colum creates an intricately woven, fast paced tale that will enthrall children and adults alike. Publishers Weekly considered his rendition of Homer 'unequalled' and thousands of readers have agreed with that assessment. This edition includes Willy Pogany's classic illustrations created for the original 1918 edition.

About the Author

The ancient Greek poet Homer established the gold standard for heroic quests and sweeping journeys with his pair of classic epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey. Crowded with characters, both human and non-human, and bursting with action, the epic tales detail the fabled Trojan War and the adventures of Odysseus as he struggles to return home. Homer’s epics have inspired countless books and works of art throughout their long history.
