While sailing home from war, clever Odysseus makes a terrible mistake. He'll need both ingenuity and humility to outwit the gods and monsters that stand between him and his family. Will he ever make it home again? This daring adventure has been told and retold for thousands of years - and now, in a gorgeous large-format paperback gift edition with watercolor, gouache and gold ink illustrations, it's better than ever.
