Publisher's Summary

The most powerful men in the world were all together in a circle in the middle of the room. Drawing their daggers, they cut their right hands and, above the pile of gold, swore Odysseus’ vow: Helen could marry whom she liked, and the Princes would defend them both…. Everyone’s heard of the wooden horse of Troy, and of the beauty of Helen. Well this is the story as Odysseus saw it, from his boyhood in Ithaca to his participation in the bloody Trojan war itself.

An old favourite

If you could sum up Odysseus: The Greatest Hero of them All in three words, what would they be?

Great story for children and adults alike! A classic.

What does Tony Robinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tony Robinson is one of my favourite narrators, up there with Steven Fry and the greats.

New Take on an Old Classic

It was just wonderful to listen to Tony Robinson spin this yarn with a more modern slant.He must have left his script at home, knew the basic storyline and decided to tell us the story anyway. I couldn't turn it off.
