This modern rendering of the story is as compelling as it has been to every generation since it was first told 3,000 years ago. All the famous episodes are here: the encounters with Polyphemus, Circe's enchanted island, and Odysseus' escape from the dreadful Scylla and Charybdis. For middle school reading levels. For a companion Iliad, see B425. By Robin Lister and Alan Baker. Kingfisher. Paperback. 173 pages.
