Best Retelling of Iliad/Odyssey/Aeneid

Recommended Posts

I'm reading Mary Pope Osbourne's "Tales From the Odyssey" with my six year old daughter. The chapters are short, she's doing great with the words, but the content is a little scary for her (to my surprise, honestly). Might not be advanced enough for your boys but we are enjoying them so far.

My older son (the classics scholar) LOVES the graphic novel version of the Odyssey by I think... Gareth Hinds? If I click over to search I will lose this, lol. The graphics are gorgeous water colors and a lot of the language is direct translations. This son has read part of it in the original Greek so I trust his judgement. He re-reads it all the time.


I have to admit I haven't read it myself though.
