The Lovereading4Kids comment
The Odyssey, Homer’s second epic adventure, tells the story of Odysseus as he travels home from the war in Troy. His adventures on his travels include his meetings with the Cyclops and with the dangerous sirens who lure boats onto the rocks among many others before his finally reaches home bringing peace to all. Odysseus’s wanderings and the many dangers he faces are beautifully captured in Alan Lee’s atmospheric illustrations.
