Publisher's Description

Experience literature's greatest epic as never before!  This phenomenal new graphic novel retelling of Homer's classic epic is the creation of multitalented artist Sam Ita, author of the bestselling pop-up versions of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea; Moby-Dick; and Frankenstein. Ita's amazing art and papercraft transport readers right to the heart of Odysseus's decade-long adventure, from a gatefold that brings you inside the mythical Trojan Horse to the movable oars on Odysseus's boat and a pull-tab in the Circe sequence that magically transforms a man into a pig.

His many creations for Sterling include Christmas Tree In-a-Box and Van Gogh's Sunflowers In-a-Box. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Editorial Reviews

“The idea of combining a graphic novel with pop-ups is brilliant.”--Robert Sabuda
 
"...plastered with fantastically dramatic pop-ups and other special effects... even newbies will be riveted by this nonstop, high-energy retelling. Homer himself would be agog." -- Kirkus Reviews (STARRED)
