Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "Unequaled" Rewriting of Homer for Children. Padraic Colum's retelling of Homer's classic epics for children is still considered by many to be the finest introduction younger readers will have to Homer. Combining the broad stories of both the Iliad and the Odyssey, Colum creates an intricately woven, fast paced tale that will enthrall children and adults alike. Publishers Weekly considered his rendition of Homer 'unequalled' and thousands of readers have agreed with that assessment. This edition includes Willy Pogany's classic illustrations created for the original 1918 edition.
