Publisher's Summary

There was once a time, nearly four thousand years ago, when the tall towers of a city called Troy reached gleaming into the sky; when its proud king fought against an invading army in a desperate siege. The Tale of Troy was so important to the ancient Greeks that its author, Homer, became a kind of hero. Long after his death artists, thinkers, and ordinary people still look to his tale for inspiration. This exciting version of the famous story is retold especially for eight 13-year-olds.

Great Fun

I really enjoyed this tale. The narratation was terrific and made the characters come alive. It is a great way to learn about Greek mythology for young adults as well as more mature ones like myself. Read this before the The Adventures of Odysseus.

Fine

It is just an abridged version of the Iliad better for children, but I would recommend the real thing.
