For over 3,000 years, the myth of Helen and Paris, Hector and Achilles, Zeus and Apollo, and beauty and betrayal has inspired imaginations. In this retelling of the Trojan War, Olivia Coolidge crafts heroes and gods into real, multidimensional characters, not just the figures of legend. Vibrant storytelling and finely wrought action have made her version of the classic tale of the Fall of Troy accessible to generations of young readers. Recommended for ages 10 and up. Slightly Imperfect.
