The acclaimed writer of the Magic Tree House series applies her talents to the tales of THE ODYSSEY in this collection of six books. James Simmons uses his incredible verbal range and attention to detail to turn this epic story into a phenomenal production. With his subtle vocal alterations, Simmons’s performance makes the Cyclops a truly ugly being, Odysseus heroic, and the goddess Athena mystical. In an engaging delivery he suspends listeners’ disbelief without going over the top. Thanks to his efforts, and to Osborne’s flawless writing, young and old can enjoy this updated version of the Greek classic, with all of the requisite gore, hardship, longing, clever tricks, and help from the gods.
