Hermes clicked his fingers and Paris was blinded by the light. He covered his face with his hands. Slowly he opened his fingers and saw standing before him the three most powerful goddesses of all.

The cyclops
The sack of winds
The land of the dead

Torment and trial

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Great for storytelling and reading aloud, this handsome, large-size picture book retells Homer's epic of Odysseus' perilous journey home in an immediate, fast-paced narrative (Half of me was furious. The other half was terrified. I drew my sword, intending to rush in and attack . . . ). The text is beautifully framed with crisp, brightly colored, mosaic-style illustrations of the heroes and monsters, rendered in watercolor, gouache, and gold ink. Particularly impressive are the image of the Cyclops' bloody eye, the sweeping view of shipwreck and the Land of the Dead, and the picture of the goddess Athene covering the island with a white swirling mist. Then there's Penelope at home, keeping her suitors at bay. For younger readers, this is an exciting introduction to the classic story. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2006 Booklist"
