Publisher's Summary

Mary Pope Osborne retells thrilling stories from Homer's Odyssey, one of the greatest epics of all time.

Volume 3 includes:
Book Five, Return to Ithaca
After years of captivity on Calypso's island, Odysseus finds himself on the shores of yet another strange land. Meanwhile, his wife, Penelope, fears for their son Telemachus. His enemies, Penelope's unwanted suitors, plan to ambush and kill him upon his return to find his father. But the family's years of suffering come to an end, as father and son are reunited in a series of startling, strange, and magical events. Odysseus is finally home. And now his revenge beings.

Book Six, The Final Battle
After struggling against the gods and his fate for more than 20 years, Odysseus has returned to Ithaca at last. But things have changed: his island has been overrun by suitors who clamor for his wife's hand in marriage and plague his son Telemachus. With the help of the grey-eyed goddess Athena, Odysseus and Telemachus must set out to regain control of Ithaca.

    "Awesome introduction for children to the Odyssey"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tales from the Odyssey to be better than the print version?

    Yes, especially for children. I think this tale can really move, interest, and excite children w/reading but often they don't receive this introduction because the versions of it are difficult to read. This series has brought to life The Odyssey for my family and I love it. Great great job. Now if I could get The Story of the World series in a downloadable version by Susan Wise Bauer--that would also be great.

    I can't think of a better reason to allow my 10 year old to stay up way past her bedtime which occurred every time I played this series at night after she finished her regular reading.
