Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide starred (September, 2007)
In this adroit, concise adaptation, Fleischman juxtaposes twentieth-century news items with the Trojan War. As the ancient story unfolds, present-day events are revealed on a facing page of each spread through reproductions of actual clippings, arranged within handsome collages in black, white, and sepia tones--providing a stirring if overt message. This updated volume includes ten new clippings. Reading list.
