Wonderfully-retold myths from the Iliad and the Odyssey for children by a famous poet, apparently unequalled since the book was first published. Also known as “The Children’s Homer”. Best when read out loud to children. With the fantastic illustrations of Willy Pogany in colour and black and white.

Padraic Colum (1881 – 1972) – the compiler and translator – was an Irish poet, novelist, dramatist, biographer, playwright, children’s author and collector of folklore. He was one of the leading figures of the Irish Literary Revival.
