Format: Paperback
I have spent weeks trying to purchase a complete set of Osborne's rendition of the Odyssey. I do not need to reiterate what a wonderful job she did in making this appropriate for younger children without ruining the true spirit of the story. You can find that in the many reviews you will find for each book.

What I am trying to do is save others from spending two weeks trying to find out how they can purchase this set without having to pay $125 for a new paperback copy of one book (The Land of the Dead). There are other books in this series that are also way too expensive. I didn't think I needed to break the bank for books that originally sold for $5.99.

So here's the scoop:

The Osborne rendition of the Odyssey was originally sold in separate books as follows:
Book One: One Eyed Giant
Book Two: Land of the Dead
Book Three: Sirens and Sea Monsters
Book Four: Gray Eyed Goddess
Book Five: Return to Ithica
Book Six: Final Battle

I was going crazy trying to find Book Two (Land of the Dead), Book Three (Sirens and Sea Monsters), and Book Six (Final Battle) for reasonable prices.

So, after much research, I discovered the following:

In 2010 the publisher, Hyperion, combined books 1-3 (now called "Tales from the Odyssey, Part One") and 4-6 (now called "Tales from the Odyssey, Part Two").

"Tales from the Odyssey, Part One": ISBN 978-1423128649 $5.99
"Tales from the Odyssey, Part Two": ISBN 978-1423126102 $5.99

I had no problem finding "Part One" on Amazon, but "Part Two" was another story. If you type in the isbn it will take you to their listing but it does not have a picture. It says "Part Two" is in stock but will take up to 2 weeks to get to you.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on January 26, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is the story of Athena and Odysseus. Odysseus was trying to get home to Ithaca, but Poseidon, the sea god, was giving him the hardest time of his life. All the gods were angry at Odysseus because he blinded the Cyclops, Poseidon's son. All of Odysseus' warriors were destroyed.

Odysseus' son is going to go look for him. Other men wanted to marry Odysseus' wife to get his land and his money, but she did not want to marry anyone else.

This book is really good to read for any age. It is interesting to learn about the different gods and goddesses in the story and how they act with Odysseus. If someone reads the story to you,like our teacher did, it feels like you are actually in it. If you want to learn more about Odysseus, the gods and goddesses, and his journey, read the rest of the books in the series.
