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
