I can't wait
Reviewed in the United States on September 25, 2008
I just recently found this again as an adult to share to my son. I remember the teachers back when I was about eight or a little younger showing us a movie version of this book. I found it mesmerizing. While it doesn't portray the culture that the book is based on absolutely correctly, it is a child's book and being so, sometimes things are changed to make it easier for them to understand. Also it is the writers interpretation of the myth. That being said, the book teaches children how to be heroic in their own respect and that sometimes the needs of the one, is outweighed by the needs of many.
The storybook itself has amazing art work and helps keep a child engaged as the journey goes on. I love this book and I hope you will too.
Buy this for a good read to your littlest ones.
