When Liz’s eccentric Aunt Gertrude comes to visit, she warns Liz and her little brother Charlie not to touch any of her things. But Charlie picks up a mysterious looking book, and the children are magically transported inside its pages. To get home, they must travel through the book, The Odyssey. Liz and Charlie must battle a one-eyed giant called a Cyclops, escape from an invisible trap on Lotus Island, and brave the deadly song of the Sirens. Can the children succeed on their quest and make it back home in time for dinner? The Book Keeper series retells the classics of literature in a way that captures young readers’ attention and imagination. Odus and the Long Way home, based on The Odyssey, is the first in the series. For ages 7 to 10.
