I, Odysseus, and the Gang from Troy

Children & Young Adult, Children's Books, Children's Books Age 10+, Children's Books Comic Novels

Odysseus & Co. tell the story of the wooden horse
The battle for Troy, the trick with the wooden horse, and the seemingly endless wanderings of Odysseus – all these adventures have been written down and filmed with some frequency. But who could tell these stories better than the heroes and heroines themselves? More entertaining than the Iliad and funnier than Hollywood. Laocoon, Calypso, Cassandra, and many others regale readers with the Greek myths, each in their own way. At last we know the answers to the most exciting questions: Who fought each other in the Trojan War? Did the Trojan Horse really exist, and what did it look like? Where did Odysseus’ journey lead? Who was Homer?
