Mini Myths From Hot-Air Balloons to Spaceshipone by Joan Holub


Mini Myths From Hot-Air Balloons to Spaceshipone by Joan Holub

When Odysseus goes shopping with his mum, she tells him to stay close, and he does--until he is tempted by The Odyssey-inspired play area in the mall and wanders off. He has fun at first, but when he can't find Mum, he gets scared. Not to worry: Mum was always close behind, and, reunited, they make their way home together. Conceived and crafted by Greek-mythology expert Joan Holub and illustrated by the bestselling Leslie Patricelli, this book also includes a summary of the original journey of Odysseus.
