introduction to the classic myths for young readers."Publishers Weekly

Odyssey into one glorious saga of heroism and magical adventure. Come voyage to ancient
Greece with Achilles who, guided by the gods, seeks vengeance on the Trojans. And follow Odysseus
on his perilous journeythrough the land of the Cyclopes, past Circe the Enchantress, the terrible
Charybdis, and the six-headed serpent Scylla.
