A dramatic retelling of Homer's classic tale The Odyssey, with a gorgeous new gift-edition cover from Sandhya Prabhat. The Trojan War is over, and the battle-weary soldier Odysseus sets out for home. On his way Odysseus faces many dangers sent by the gods to test him. Will he outwit the one-eyed giant Cyclops, the cunning enchantress Circe, and the terrifying monsters Scylla and Charybdis? This dramatic retelling of Homer's epic story retains all the excitement of the original. Robin Lister's fast-paced, lyrical retelling is perfectly pitched for grades 4 and above, while the evocative black-and-white artworks by best-selling illustrator Alan Baker bring the dramatic tale to thrilling life. Kingfisher Epics are action-packed retellings of classic tales and legends, with all the exhilaration and immediacy of their original versions. Magnificent illustrations bring the heroic deeds depicted in these stories dramatically to life. These stories have enthralled readers for centuries, and Kingfisher Epics make them accessible to a new generation of children.
