MEDIA REVIEWS
The Ladybird Expert series continues to tackle admirably remote subjects with this look at the life and work of enigmatic, ancient author Homer. His stories of the Trojan War and the later journey home of legendary king Odysseus may be just that - stories - but here they're brought evocatively to life. As well as a guide to their epic plots, there's also explorations of their themes, inspirations, and subsequent legacies * History Revealed *
The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information. * Shiny New Books *
