Read in January, 2001

Beside the adept retelling of the story of the Iliad by a premier writer of YA historical fiction, this lavish hardcover book is filled, almost page for page, with the breathtaking watercolor paintings of Alan Lee (most notable for his illustrations of The Lord of the Rings books and his artistic collaboration with Peter Jackson in the recent movie trilogy version). A fantastic book!
