This title is suitable for children aged 7 to 9 years old. In this title, Homer's epic tale of the warrior Odysseus' decades-long struggle to return home after the Trojan War is simply and beautifully retold, with all the drama intact. Young readers will thrill at Odysseus' adventures with the man-eating Cyclops; the enchantress Circe, who turns his crew into pigs and the angry sea god Poseidon.
