The story of the Trojan War has been told again and again. In A Thousand Ships, Shanower graphically presents the ancient legends informed by the findings of modern archeology. His extensive research on the Age of Bronze has produced historically accurate drawings. The first in a series of seven volumes about the Trojan War, A Thousand Ships introduces the characters and sets the stage for the war incited by the kidnapping of the beautiful Helen from her home in Sparta. Shanower’s words and illustrations will make an old, old story new again.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2005-2006)
