About this title

Synopsis:

The only picture book available featuring the tale of the Trojan Horse!

The Trojan Horse is one of the best known and most ingenious plans in the history of warfare. But it certainly raises a lot of questions: How did the Greeks, so far from home, pull off this daring feat? How did the Trojans—surrounded in their fortress—have enough food and water to sustain them for years? How could so tall a wooden horse be built unseen?

Albert Lorenz provides his answers to these questions, and others, via art panels, speech balloons, and architectural-style drawings, for a totally unique perspective on the famous conflict. The chorus guides the action, but there is plenty of commentary by the gods, as well as human action on earth. The city, ships, and the horse itself are rendered as architectural cut-aways and elevations to reveal what is going on inside as well as outside.

Packed full of well-researched facts and historical details, this book will appeal to readers looking for an adventure story about military cunning and fantastic events.

About the Author:

Albert Lorenz has written and illustrated three children’s books: Buried Blueprints®, House, and Metropolis, which was a Smithsonian Notable Book for Children.
