About the Author:

Padraic Colum (1881 1972) was a poet, a playwright, and a leader of the Irish Renaissance, but he is best known for his works for children, including "The Children of Odin" and "The Golden Fleece" (a Newbery Honor Book).

Review:

''Published in 1918, Colum's stirring telling of the Greek epics is still unequaled as an introduction to the classic myths for young readers.'' --Publishers Weekly

'' (Audiobook narrator) Whitfield's (-aka- Simon Vance) distinct narration gives a clear rendition of classic myths The Iliad and The Odyssey. The reading is intelligible to children yet preserves the heroic style of the sagas. It is a treat to hear Greek words pronounced with such ease.'' --Lolly Gepson
