Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A glorious gift book from an award-winning storyteller and a much lauded illustrator, who evoke the high drama of mythical Greece and the prehistory of Rome in this retelling of The Aeneid.

Taking his old father on his back and his young son by the hand, Aeneas flees the sacked city of Troy, entrusted by his goddess-mother, Venus, with a daunting mission: Find a new homeland for his people. It is an arduous journey. At every turn, unimaginable dangers await him: terrible monsters and giants; supernatural hazards sent by the enraged goddess Juno; and worst of all, an eerie, death-defying descent into the Underworld, where he will be allowed a glimpse of his Roman descendants’ glorious future.
