I'm no literary critic but my daughter loves the book. I love history but she could tell me more about the Trojan War than I knew after reading it. Would I sit down to read this? Not really. For her age though (7 and in 2nd grade) it appears to be appropriate.
I thought this book was really good. Odysseus' strategy was tricky and clever. I like that! Greek mythological fans out there would love this book.
