{Synopsis} – When Odysseus goes shopping with his mom, she tells him to stay close, and he does—until he is tempted by The Odyssey–inspired play area in the mall and wanders off. He has fun at first, but when he can’t find Mom, he gets scared. Not to worry: Mom was always close behind, and, reunited, they make their way home together. Conceived and crafted by Greek-mythology expert Joan Holub and illustrated by the bestselling Leslie Patricelli, this book also includes a summary of the original journey of Odysseus.

{My thoughts} – I really enjoy these mini myth books.They let you share complicated life lessons with your small children in a very simple way. It is brightly colored and eye appealing. It also has easy to turn pages for small hands. At the end of each book is an explanation of the myth in a much more explanatory fashion.

In this particular book Odysseus and his mom go to the store. He wants to go and play in the play area whereas his mom tells him to stay with her. He decides that he can do what he wants and doesn’t listen and goes off and plays. He ends up getting lost. Because of that he ends up scared and cries for help. In the end his mom knew where he was and was right there to get him.

I look forward to sharing this book with my children over and over again.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
