Mary Pope Osborne retells thrilling stories from Homer's Odyssey, one of the greatest epics of all time.

Volume 1 includes:
Book One, The One-Eyed Giant
When Odysseus must leave his home to fight in the Trojan War, he never imagines that he'll be away from his family for so many years. Now, at long last, he is leading his men across the seas. But many dangers await them, and none is more terrifying than Polyphemus, the one-eyed giant.

Book Two, The Land of the Dead
Odysseus and his men have defeated the one-eyed giant, but its curse plagues them at every turn. Cast out to the open seas by the wind god, Odysseus and his men face giant cannibals and outwit a beautiful witch, who reveals Odysseus's next challenge, a journey to the mysterious and feared land of the dead.

    " We have been reading Greek Myths lately and I discovered this series by Mary Pope Osborne. They are written for grade 2-5 but I am reading them aloud to my 5 year olds. I think Osborne does a great job of taking the story and making it interesting and understandable for younger kids. We will be reading the rest of the series. "

    " This series is a retelling of Homer's Odyssey for young audiences (think 1st-2nd grade). The One-Eyed Giant is the first in that series, and covers such famous stories as the Trojan Horse, the Lotus-Eaters, and Polyphemus. Great for the audience... but not really unique. "

    " Kids should read these before the Riordian books, they would give the a clearer view, in a simpler format. "
