    Funny story: My copy of this book came from a eBay lot--that is, a set of multiple items bought together from that website--and this specific one formerly belonged to a school library...in Ontario! Used bookstores don't accept ex-library items, so, now that I'm done with it, I'll just donate mine to a thrift store...and who knows where it'll end up after that? As for the book itself, it was a fun adaptation of an age-old story.

As a longtime advanced reader, I would suggest reading the original over this...but, for those who have trouble with antiquated literature, this does a good job of putting the long epic into easy to understand terms.

    "Can you please tell me when your obsession with Greek mythology began?" "Well, it all started when I was six and my mom brought home this book from the library...it all just went downhill from there. I started using Scylla and Charybdis metaphors all the time and I freaked out when scientists discovered a new dwarf planet and named it 'Circe'. 'Nobody' puns prevailed in my house, and then my dad began to read 'D'aulaires' Book of Greek Myths' before bed..." "Can you please tell me when your obsession with Greek mythology began?"

    I can't remember how I got this book - I wonder if it was a set with the PC game that I played over and over as a kid. For that possibility, I don't think I can give this book up. I don't think I can label it a favourite anymore just because it's still a kid's book, but I still love Wishbone, and I love the Odyssey story, or at least the 5% of the story that everyone knows. Maybe I'll love the prose version. I can't remember how I got this book - I wonder if it was a set with the PC game that I played over and over as a kid.

    I read this book first in 9th grade English, then again for a college class. It's not a whole lot more than a rousing adventure tale in a classical Greek setting with gods and heroes galore. My favorite part is Penelope's resourcefulness and my least favorite, Odysseus' egotism. Here's another classic everyone literate ought to be acquainted with--lots of allusions in our contemporary life! I read this book first in 9th grade English, then again for a college class.

    I love the Wishbone series/books but this was one of my favorites. I grew up with Wishbone and hope that younger generations can learn classic stories at an early age through him as well. I recommend it for young readers and old ones alike!

    A great wishbone version of the classic, 6 year old was totally into it. While (obviously) a lot was cut out, the main themes and story points were included to give a solid basic, yet entertaining outline of the tale.

    Enriching read. Always good to hang out with the Greeks :)
