Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
How did people long ago understand things that were happening in the world around them? The Greeks wrote stories called myths to help them and to teach lessons about right and wrong. This title, a retelling of the Greek myth of Odysseus and the one-eyed monster, Cyclops, is an introduction to mythology for older emergent readers. A Table of Contents, six chapters with consistent placement, font and color as well as numbered pages and fantastic illustrations provide support to readers. Five colorful, double-page spreads are included among the forty-eight pages. Part of the “Ready To Read” series, the book is a Level three and best read by proficient readers as it contains longer, complex story plot and development, challenging vocabulary words and more difficult sentence structure. The author has written over one hundred books for young readers, including the Goddess Girls, Heroes in Training, Vincent van Gogh Sunflowers and Swirly Stars as well as Shampoodle and Zero the Hero. Readers will enjoy following along as Odysseus outwits the one-eyed giant. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid; Ages 6 to 8.
