Odus and the Long Way Home
(Pink Chicken Press, Sept. 17, 2014)
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, and make sure it ends the right way. 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 in their quest and make it back home in time for dinner? Odus and the Long Way Home is the first in the Book Keeper series designed for kids ages 7 to 10. The series retells the classics of literature in an appealing and kid-friendly way.
