Sirens and Sea Monsters (Tales from the Odyssey Series #3)by Mary Pope Osborne, Troy Howell (Illustrator), Homer
Odysseus and his men have done what no other mortals have done: returned alive from the terrifying Land of the Dead. Armed with warnings and advice from the ghosts of the prophet Tiresias, Odysseus is determined to finally sail home to Ithaca. But the enchantress Circe tells him that the Greeks will face even more horrors on their journey, including an encounter with Scylla, the six-headed monster, and Charybdis, the deadly whirlpool. Who will survive these terrors-and how? In this third of six books based on episodes from Homer's Odyssey, Mary Pope Osborne continues the exciting adventures of one of the greatest heroes of all time.

After coming back from the Land of the Dead, Odysseus returns to the enchantress Circe. She warns him about many dangers ahead: Sirens, who are women who lure people to watery deaths, the deadly six-headed monster Scylla, and the whirlpool monster Charybdis. How's he going to survive? I liked this book because there were lots of monsters, meaning more adventure. I always wanted to know what they were like and how the Greeks would get past them.
