This would be a good book to have 5th or 6th graders read in the classroom. I would use this book to have the students work on finding the main events that happen in the story and being able to put them in sequential order.

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.
