List of the Tales from the Odyssey


Odysseus is a conquering hero of the Trojan War. The Odyssey is an epic poem about a sea adventure.

Tales from the Odyssey series based on Homer’s The Odyssey are written by Mary Pope Osborne.

It was Odysseus' idea to build the Trojan horse, but now that the Trojan War is finished he is tired and wants to return home. Greek gods have terrible tempers and because Odysseus wants to return home Poseidon is very angry. Because of this, now Odysseus is doomed to a twenty-year sea voyage before reaching his homeland, wife and son.

Mary Pope Osborne retells Odysseus’ adventures on his homeward voyage. She writes using her trademark early chapter book format. The series contains six books. The popular author introduces children to the characters whom Odysseus encounters on his voyages. The Tales from the Odyssey is a great way to familiarize young children with the sea adventure. Reading Homer’s The Odyssey in High School is easier when the student is already acquainted with the epic poem.
