Product description

The epic Greek saga of journeying and homecoming, retold by a brilliant children’s author. After ten years of war, Odysseus finally turns his back on Troy and sets sail for home. But this is no short hop on the ferry: his voyage back to Icatha will take him another ten years! On the way, he faces terrible dangers: Polyphemus the greedy one-eyed giant, and Scylla the six-headed sea monster. But when he (oops) upsets the gods themselves, will he ever make it back to his wife and child?

  • Homer’s epic story brilliantly retold by a classic author
  • Geraldine McCaughrean’s books include The Kite Rider
  • She won the 2018 Carnegie Medal for Where the World Ends
  • A supremely child-friendly version full of danger and drama
  • Bursting with battles, heroic deeds and horrible monsters
