ODYSSEUS IN THE SERPENT MAZE
New York : HarperCollins,
IL 3-6, RL 4.7
were the Greek heroes like as teens? Odysseus already is set to be a hero
as he tries to kill a wild boar. He is brave, somewhat brash, often stretching
the truth to suit him. Mentor, his buddy, is far more cautious and hesitant.
Helen is vain and spoiled, mostly concerned with her appearance. Penelope
is very resourceful, loyal and brave. Wonderful adventures as Odysseus
and Mentor try to get home from his grandfather to Ithaca. The incredible
exploits filled with monsters and daring deeds makes this story a real
page-turner! (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania
