Summary: When Odysseus must leave his home to fight the Trojan War, he never imagines that he'll be away from his family for so many years. Now, at long last, he is leading his men home across the seas. But many dangers await them - and none is more terrifying than Polyphemus, the one-eyed giant. (GoodReads.com)
Review: I read this book as part of a collection of stories that are bundled into the book ( Tales from the Odyssey , Book # 1.) I am a big fan of mythology books. Mary Pope Osbourne has done a wonderful job retelling the story for elementary readers. It has action and adventure. It's magical and entertaining. I watched those old corny Sinbad movies when I was a chid. This book took me back to a time and place far from here. A land of myth.
