Publisher Description

This beautifully written book by the famous Irish poet should be read by, or to, every child to give them an introduction to the most important work (outside of religious books) ever composed. The story here told has inspired people of all civilizations for nearly 3,000 years. No person should be allowed reach adulthood without having experienced some aspects of Greek classical civilization and these action-packed tales of heroism, humanity, weakness, tragedy and joy are a great starting-point. A sampling of the stories of the Iliad, Odyssey and of other Greek myths and heroes can be the start of a lifetime of fascination. When Telemachus is a baby his father, Odysseus, is called to go to war. When Telemachus grows older, the goddess Athene tells him to go seek his father. Telemachus obeys and great adventure begins. Odysseus is a favorite character in this book, because he was brave and wise. He would listen to advice given to him and was polite and thankful. Children can learn much from these stories, which demonstrate many positive character traits that everyone needs to cultivate.
