'The Iliad' tells the story of the war between the Greeks and the Trojans; the love between Helen and Paris; and the Trojan Horse. 'The Odyssey' depicts the perilous voyage home of the Greek warrior Odysseus. This title retells these stories with a cartoon style, aiming to make them accessible and fun for young children.

Surely the most entertaining way to explore ancient history." Junior Education * "Likely to amuse and even absorb children for a good while... Has a kind of Where's Wally?-ish delight in visual minutiae." The Times Educational Supplement"
