In this acclaimed series based on episodes from Homer's Odyssey, bestselling author Mary Pope Osborne brings one of the greatest adventures of all time to a dramatic life.

When Odysseus must leave his home to fight in the Trojan War, he never imagines that he will be away from his family for so many years. Now, at long last, he is leading his men home across the seas. Many dangers await them-including Polyphemus, the one-eyed giant, Circe, the beautiful witch, sirens, and the Land of the Dead. But the greatest danger awaits Odysseus at home in Ithaca, where a gang of men have moved into his home and plagued his wife and son.

Wow! we so enjoyed hearing this on a long road trip - also a 7 year old. A great tale of perseverance and humility - Odysseus cries for his men, for his family, he is a true hero and a man to look up to. The reader's pronunciations are a bit on the strange side (goddesses for instance) but not an obstacle that cannot be overcome. Great way to slip in a classic story to your kid. Thanks Mary Pope Osborne for making this story approachable and enthralling to young kids.

This is a wonderful tale of the Odyssey. My 7 year old daughter and I were captivated by this story adapted from Homer's epic poem.
