Publisher's Summary

When first published, Walker’s versions of the Iliad and the Odyssey attracted attention for the quality of the writing. 

Multi-award-winning author Gillian Cross makes two of the greatest stories in the world come alive for children in her strong, clear, deceptively simple retellings, which are faithful to the spirit and structure of Homer’s epic poems, and this new bind-up in a friendly format comes complete with an introduction.

Grateful

I was about to buy the unabridged version of Homers Odyssey and the Iliad but I decided to go for this four hours summary and I am glad I did. Judging from the details of the story I would have been lost a 100 times in the unabridged version. it’s beautifully written. The narrator’s neatness adds to the clarity of the events.

Narrator is great.
Simple telling of a couple of ripping yarns.
