The Adventures of Odysseus is a retelling of classic Greek myths by Neil Philip. The book contains a collection of eleven tales organized in a fashion so that they form one cohesive story. Odysseus travels home to Ithaca from Troy where he encounters Gods, Sirens, monsters and more. This book is serves as a great introduction to Greek mythology, while giving the tales a new spin with some changes here and there.

Upon opening the picture book there is a map that outlines the voyage of Odysseus. F
My 10-year old son read this book & enjoyed it a a lot. I did not get the chance to read it, but would like to sometime. He said it was very interesting, like an adventure book, and he read it in just a few hours (72 pages). He couldn't put it down!
Getting ready for that trip to Greece I picked this one up to read to Michael. The story was enjoyable enough that I'm going to listen to The Odyssey.
