Product Description

Mark Twain once said a classic is “a book which people praise, but don’t read.” But children and adults alike can now experience the greatest works of literature like never before. Condensed to less than 50 pages while still capturing the style and the celebrated lines from the original works, each of these timeless stories can now be easily completed in one sitting. Every page begins with a beautiful animated scene that will draw the reader into the story, creating a memorable visual experience that will turn even the most challenging classic into a page turner. Custom art, enchanting music, and optional narration with read-along text will effortlessly transport readers to the fantastic world of Homer, Melville, and Vern. These wonderful adaptations were created to make any classic not just approachable, but enjoyable. After all, shouldn’t reading be fun?

The battle of Troy was finally over. Ten years of war, ten years of hunger, ten years of sorrows—over.

They had left Ithaca as young men, but the experience of battle was now etched upon their faces. Standing on the shoreline, they watched Troy burn to the ground in silence.

Odysseus, the King of Ithaca and their fearless leader for these last ten years, broke the silence, “Let’s go home.”

Your child can follow Odysseus and his brave crew as they make their final voyage home to Ithaca faced with a series of hardships and challenges from men, women, and immortals alike. This ancient tale by the poet Homer comes to life in a 38 page adaptation featuring custom art, animated scenes, rich music, and optional narration with read-along text. Your children will love turning each page as they discover the timeless themes of friendship, family, and love that Homer captured so brilliantly nearly 3000 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to more in this series! January 27, 2013
My five-year old gets an hour of Kindle FreeTime each night before bed. A few mornings ago, during breakfast, he nonchalantly began discussing "the one-eyed monsters who rule the seas." I asked him where he'd heard about Cyclops and he showed me this app on his profile.

I couldn't be happier with this introduction to the great classic. The language is rich; it's not dumbed down for kids. The "read to me" option has wonderful narration and each word is highlighted as it is read, fully immersing the reader in the language. The pictures are great and don't hold anything back.

He also downloaded Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" from this series and enjoyed it too. I hope to see a lot more of these on FreeTime!
