The Iliad: 1


Childrens Book Publisher
  • Gillian Cross’s brilliant retelling  bring to life Homer’s Iliad. Cross’s vivid adaptation begins with a beauty contest: the prize, a golden apple. In return for securing her victory, the goddess Aphrodite helps Prince Paris abduct Helen, wife to the king of Sparta. Enraged, the king and his Greek allies wage war on the Trojans. Nine years later, the fighting still rages on, but the Greeks are beginning to quarrel among themselves – Achilles and Agamemnon’s petty argument has dire consequences for everyone caught in the crossfire.

George really enjoyed this book, we were unsure if it would be too much for him at 7 but he was enthralled by it and was asking lots of questions. This version was written by Gillian Cross and was written really well to capture their imaginations. I was tempted to read it myself!
