The Iliad - retold by Gillian Cross
with illustrations by Neil Packer


Homer's Iliad is a story about human bravery and the heartbreak of war.

Greeks and Trojans have been fighting for almost ten years, ever since the Trojan prince, Paris, carried off Helen, the King of Sparta's beautiful wife. A quarrel splits the Greek army and the gods take sides. Troy's fate hangs in the balance...

This retelling of Homer's great story has stunning illustrations by Neil Packer.
