Homer’s great story is retold with simplicity and style by Gillian Cross. It charts the ten year epic voyage of Odysseus as he returns from the Trojan War to the island of Ithaca. On his journey he encounters all manner of perils, from the man-eating Cyclops and the evil sorceress Circe, to the deadly lure of the Sirens and the wrath of the sea-god Poseidon. Neil Packer’s striking illustrations capture the terrors of Odysseus’s travels as well as the dangers faced by his wife Penelope and his son Telemachus at home.
