    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.

    The best revisit to Homer's classic, the Odyssey.

    This is the last book in the six-book series, Tales from the Odyssey by Mary Pope Osborne and Troy Howell. This saga comes to its dramatic conclusion and we are very happy having read the whole series. When we started reading this series, I was a bit afraid that our girls would have nightmares, but they took the story in stride. Overall, this was an exciting and intense tale. We really enjoyed this series!I must say that I'm really impressed with this series and other books for younger children that bring Greek Mythology to life for them. The tales may not be the epic versions I read in high school and college, but the plot and characters are all pretty much the same. Some of the series, like the Goddess Girls series by Joan Holub and the Myth-O-Mania series by Kate McMullan are a bit more irreverent and take a bit more artistic license with the myths, but on the whole, I am so thankful that our girls have a deep interest in this subject and know far more about it than I ever did!

    This is the sixth and final book in the Mary Pope Osborne's translation of Homer’s The Odyssey to a level that elementary age students can read and enjoy. This was not my favorite in the collection but I have not read the original; I’m sure M.P.O. did the best she could while trying to stay true to the story. These are perfect read alouds for intermediate teachers wanting additional resources that help to expose their students to Greek Mythology.

    Giants, sea monsters, wicked queens, sirens, kind gods, cruel gods, wicked men, and terrible storms, Odysseus faces them all. What an epic story! And what a retelling of the story by Mary Pope Osborne in Tales From the Odyssey. This series is great for young people interested in mythology, tales of adventure, or just plain fun. Book six, The Final Battle, is a fitting conclusion to the series.

    I liked it. It's about when he returns his house is full of people who want to marry his wife because they think he's dead. He tells his son and they make a plot to take over again. But there's only 2 of them and 120 others. And they win the battle.

    I'm glad I finally finished this series! It's good for the age group it's meant for. Nice short chapters, easily readable and will hold their attention. Third-fifth grade.
