After years of captivity on Calypso's island, Odysseus finds himself on the shores of yet another strange land. Meanwhile, his wife, Penelope, fears for their son Telemachus. His enemies, Penelope's unwanted suitors, plan to ambush and kill him upon his return to find his father. But the family's years of suffering come to an end, as father and son are reunited in a series of startling, strange, and magical events. Odysseus is finally home. And now his revenge beings.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connery | 3/23/2011

    " These books are very short, yet they are the stories you hear of in the "Percy Jackson" series. They go in depth with the King Odyseeous of ithica and his long journy home. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 6/1/2010

    " A very nice story of Homer's Odyssey. I liked reading more about Greek Mythology and it was very easy to follow. Middle grade students would be able to follow this pretty easily but unsure about how they would deal with some of the things monsters do in the story to they Greeks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ludi Magister | 2/20/2010

    " Read to my students and my children. Best when read with expression and the occasional interpolation to add zest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolina | 1/12/2010

    " Another book that Julian and I read together. He flew through it and begged to read more each night. In my opinion, the only way to read the Odyssey. It is the original story just written so a kid can read it and enjoy it. We now are waiting for the next book from the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/11/2010

    " I read this with my 7 year old and we both really enjoyed it. It got gruesome at points, but was very easy to understand and fun to read. Can't wait for the next books.
    "

    " This series is completely fascinating for my boy. We even had to make another trip to the library for additional mythology books. Love it when I happen to pick something that inspires further inquiry. "

    " I loved this series. And so did my 7 year old son! If you've never plowed through the Odyssey, but would like to learn the fundementals of this great epic tale, here is the perfect abridged edition! Still poetic and engaging in regular 2nd grade level English. "
