Based on the Odyssey,
Homer's epic poem, The Adventures of Ulysses
recounts the greatest adventure story of all time as it chronicles the amazing life of the Greek king, Ulysses, his perilous voyage homeward after the Trojan War, and his eventual return to the Greek island of Ithaca and his loving wife, Penelope.
Bruce LaFontaine's 27 ready-to-color illustrations, with full captions, re-create a voyage packed with adventure and danger, describing chilling encounters with the Cyclops, a terrible one-eyed giant; deadly confrontation with a tribe of giant cannibals; and the narrow escape of Ulysses and his men from the hypnotic charms of the treacherous Sirens.
Retold in a format suitable for colorists of all ages, this classic tale will thrill anyone fascinated by legendary feats of brave heroes and their voyages to mysterious worlds beyond the horizon.
