About this title


Annotated adaptations of the best in world literature for today's children.

In this captivating retelling of this ancient yet timeless tale of war, jealousy, loyalty, and love, author Adrian Mitchell and illustrator Stuart Robertson capture all the excitement, mystery, and sheer power of Homer's original epic. Accompanying fact boxes put the poem in clear context, with abundant information on the Trojan War, Greek mythology, and Homer's impact on world culture. Dorling Kindersley Classics presents classic works of literature, richly retold. Additional information on period, setting, and author adds depth to these retellings. The beautiful illustrations are complemented by new photography, prints, diagrams, maps, and other documents.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-This smoothly written retelling may interest the same audience that enjoyed Neil Philip's The Adventures of Odysseus (Orchard, 1997). Covering mostly the same selections with approximately the same detail, Mitchell places small bits of background information in the margins of the stories and on pages in between them. These tidbits won't be enough for researchers, but could whet the interest of those reading for pleasure. However, some students may find them distracting. Full-color drawings, photographs of sites and artifacts, and reproductions appear throughout. The best illustrations surround the text on all sides, imparting a sense of the drama of the tales. Mitchell's casual writing style may interest children not ready for the elevated text of the original and reluctant readers but there is no fire in this telling, making it an additional purchase.
