LoveReading View on The Usborne Illustrated Odyssey

This lean but effective retelling of one of the greatest stories of all time is made even more lively thanks to numerous full colour illustrations. In vignettes and full page illustrations Sebastiaan Van Donnick brings to life the movers and shakers of the ancient world, men, gods and monsters, clearly relishing the chance to portray those scenes in which they are in direct combat. The sea too is a constant presence, as much a part of the story as Odysseus himself. It’s a really pleasing book for young readers and added extras including a colour map showing Odysseus’s journey and an illustrated list of dramatis personae further increase the appeal. ~ Andrea Reece
