From the Publisher
Perhaps the ultimate model for making history relevant. . . . A superb and often inspiring work. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Newbery Medal winner Fleischman goes right to today's headlines and shows that the ancient world and our own are not so very different at all. He retells Homer's tale of the Trojan War, The Illiad, in a brisk narrative that will capture kids' attention." -- Booklist (boxed review)

"This exquisitely designed and provocative book should spark debate, insight, and an appreciation of historical connections." -- Parenting

Back matter includes suggestions for further reading.

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.
