" This book is an intersteing book, it's about a man named Odyesseus that goes on a mission and fights many different creature. He landed on an island and had to fight a Cyclops, he stapped it in the eye and tricked him. So when Odyesseus went to attack him, he told him that his name was no body, so when the Cyclops screamed for help, he told the other Cyclops that no one was attacking him. At the end Odyessus came back alive " said.

" This is the nicest children's edition of the Odyssey I've seen. It maintains the poetic feeling this story should have, and simplifies things enough to be accessible and interesting to elementary-age kids (the ones in my class, at least) without losing the feeling of a Greek epic. The watercolor illustrations are nicely done, and add to the story, although there might be something to say for leaving more to the imagination. " said.

" I just read this book for my children's lit class, and I did not like it at all. It was supposed to be a version of the Odyssey for kids, but it was so dumbed down that there was no story or description left. Sure kids would not understand Homer, but they are not stupid. The author could have added so much more, but instead she just gave an outline of the story. I would not recommend it to a child or anyone for that matter. " said.

" This is a shortened version of the real wanderings of oddyseus. I thought it was pretty good and the author did a pretty good job.Odysseus travels to all of these foreign lands trying to get back home from defeating the city Troy. He keeps getting stopped and finally all of his shipman die and he is the last one alive.Enventually he makes it home to his wife and wins the battle.I like this book and would have it in my classroom. " said.

"The book Wanderings of Odysseus by Rosemary Sutton tells the story of the hero Odysseus trying to get home after the fall of Troy. In the story, he has to face many temptations to get home. Overall, I thought the book was mundane but had intriguing action scenes. Odysseus' character was very likable, and he had great character development. I could relate to facing temptations and how the story is very metaphorical to everyday life. This book makes me want to read the actual Odyssey. I'd recommend this book to everyone because it's such a good classical book.

"Resumiendo, Las Aventuras de Ulises: La historia de la Odisea me ha gustado muchísimo. El clásico de La odisea de Homero adaptado de una manera sencilla y muy rápida de leer. Un libro con muchísima acción y muchos sucesos inesperados. Giros argumentales muy buenos. Ulises es un personaje realmente muy completo y astuto. La parte mitológica de la novela me fascinó y me enamoró por completo. En general una muy buena lectura que recomiendo enormemente.

"Beautiful, compelling retelling of Homer's Odyssey. The book is considered children's literature, but it is easily enjoyed and appreciated by anyone of any age. If you are "afraid" of Homer's epic poetry, this is a great place to start. Accompanied by gorgeous artwork (lots of nudes in there, if you're concerned about that with children...), it is a book worth browsing again and again. It carries all the action, suspense, and drama of the original, and whets your appetite for the real thing. Highly recommended. " said.

"In this book, the Odyssey is retold in a wonderful style with such interesting descriptions, they make your body pop right into the book! Rosemary Sutcliff is a really good author to have created something as brilliant as this!

In this book you can join Odysseus on his marvellous adventures to return to his homeland, and the perils he and his crew meet on the way. Scylla and the Lord of the Winds are reformed in this amazing book of surprises, and I don't think I could describe how much I loved it in words, until I wrote this!
