The Iliad and the Odyssey

By Marcia Williams

Thrilling comic-strip action, with monsters, mighty heroes and even mightier gods and goddesses.

The Iliad tells the story of the war between Greeks and Trojans; the love between Helena and Paris; Achilles and Hector's deadly combat; the Trojan Horse... The Odyssey depicts the perilous voyage home of the Greek warrior Odysseus; his struggles against the one-eyed Cyclops; the terrible Sirens; the dreadful, six-headed Scylla... These classic Greek stories have been retold with lively text and a dramatic cartoon style, making them accessible and fun for young children.

Reviews

'Likely to amuse and even absorb children for a good while... Has a kind of Where's Wally?-ish delight in visual minutiae.' The Times Educational Supplement

'Elegant, intelligent, funny, dramatic and totally absorbing; the perfect start to an early familiarity with Homer.' The Guardian

'Brings clarity and humour to these ancient myths... Surely the most entertaining way to explore ancient history.' Junior Education

'Gareth Hinds brings The Odyssey to life in a masterful blend of art and storytelling. Vivid and exciting, this graphic novel is a worthy new interpretation of Homer's epic.' Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
