The Iliad; and, The odyssey

Cross, Gillian, author; Cross, Gillian; Pugh, Leighton, narrator; Homer

Gillian Cross's brilliant retellings and Neil Packer's clever illustrations bring to life Homer's 'Iliad' and 'Odyssey,' two of the greatest stories ever told. When first published Walker's versions of the 'Iliad' and the 'Odyssey' attracted attention both for the quality of the writing and for their amazingly stylish artwork. Multi-award-winning author Gillian Cross makes two of the greatest stories in the world come alive for children in her strong, clear, deceptively simple retellings, which are faithful to the spirit and structure of Homer's epic poems
