There are some books when you just look at them
you know they are good quality.
This is one of these books. 
It is a beautiful hard-backed book that would
make a fantastic heirloom.

The story of Iliad is set whilst the Trojan War 
has been raging for almost ten years.
The Achaeans seek revenge against
the Trojans, ad there is no end in sight.

The gods become involved and swoop down from
Mount Olympus to join the fight.

The story of Iliad has been rewritten so it's easier for younger 
readers to read.
Although it's easier for reading it still keeps the
essence and feeling of the original story.
This is a story that will be read time and again
and with each read the child will see more of the story.
I am reading this to Little Red at the moment
and he is finding exciting and stimulating his imagination.
He loves stories that involve gods and wars.
He got so excited when he saw Zeus was in the story.

I would give this book 4.5 out of 5

I did receive a copy of the book to review.
However all opinions expressed are my own.
