Homer's epic poem of the adventures of Odysseus' journey home after the Trojan War, retold for younger readers
The Odyssey is an ancient Greek epic poem that recounts the return of Odysseus, the King of Ithaca, from the Trojan War. Odysseus endures many trials and hardships before he finally reaches home. Confronted by natural and supernatural threats—from the witch Circe, who turns his men into pigs, to the twin terrors of Scylla and Charybdis; from the stupefied Lotus-Eaters to the implacable enmity of the sea-god Poseidon himself—Odysseus must test his bravery and native cunning to the full if he is to reach his homeland safely. This retelling has been shortened and illustrated for younger readers.
