The Final Battle: Tales From the Odyssey book 6 by Mary Pope Osborne

genre: children's literature

Ah, to reach the end. And when the ending is solid with everyone coming together happily, so much the better. Of course, it didn't come without some effort - blood had to be spilled and crimes revenged, but we always knew Odysseus had it in him to make it home.

I want to, again, give this series three giant cheers. What a fantastic introduction to one of the most famous stories of all time. I feel like I've given my son (and myself, really) a solid foundation so that later on, he will hear references to images, ideas and characters from the Odyssey and they will ring a bell. That's worth a lot.
