Experience literature's greatest epic as never before!  This phenomenal new graphic novel retelling of Homer's classic epic is the creation of multitalented artist Sam Ita, author of the bestselling pop-up versions of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea; Moby-Dick; and Frankenstein. Ita's amazing art and papercraft transport readers right to the heart of Odysseus's decade-long adventure, from a gatefold that brings you inside the mythical Trojan Horse to the movable oars on Odysseus's boat and a pull-tab in the Circe sequence that magically transforms a man into a pig.

About the Author:

Sam Ita studied graphic design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. He apprenticed for five years with Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart on bestselling pop-up titles including America the Beautiful and Encyclopedia Prehistorica, and on Christmas cards for the Museum of Modern Art. His many creations for Sterling include Christmas Tree In-a-Box and Van Gogh's Sunflowers In-a-Box. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Review:

“The idea of combining a graphic novel with pop-ups is brilliant.”--Robert Sabuda "...plastered with fantastically dramatic pop-ups and other special effects... even newbies will be riveted by this nonstop, high-energy retelling. Homer himself would be agog." -- Kirkus Reviews (STARRED)
