    "Can you please tell me when your obsession with Greek mythology began?""Well, it all started when I was six and my mom brought home this book from the library...it all just went downhill from there. I started using Scylla and Charybdis metaphors all the time and I freaked out when scientists discovered a new dwarf planet and named it 'Circe'. 'Nobody' puns prevailed in my house, and then my dad began to read 'D'aulaires' Book of Greek Myths' before bed..."

    I can't remember how I got this book - I wonder if it was a set with the PC game that I played over and over as a kid. For that possibility, I don't think I can give this book up. I don't think I can label it a favourite anymore just because it's still a kid's book, but I still love Wishbone, and I love the Odyssey story, or at least the 5% of the story that everyone knows. Maybe I'll love the prose version.

    I read this book first in 9th grade English, then again for a college class. It's not a whole lot more than a rousing adventure tale in a classical Greek setting with gods and heroes galore. My favorite part is Penelope's resourcefulness and my least favorite, Odysseus' egotism. Here's another classic everyone literate ought to be acquainted with--lots of allusions in our contemporary life!

    I love the Wishbone series/books but this was one of my favorites. I grew up with Wishbone and hope that younger generations can learn classic stories at an early age through him as well. I recommend it for young readers and old ones alike!

    A great wishbone version of the classic, 6 year old was totally into it. While (obviously) a lot was cut out, the main themes and story points were included to give a solid basic, yet entertaining outline of the tale.
