"Perhaps the ultimate model for making history relevant. . . . A superb and often inspiring work." — KIRKUS REVIEWS (starred review) "Newbery Medal winner Fleischman goes right to today's headlines and shows that the ancient world and our own are not so very different at all. He retells Homer's tale of the Trojan War, THE ILLIAD, in a brisk narrative that will capture kids' attention." — BOOKLIST (boxed review) "This exquisitely designed and provocative book should spark debate, insight, and an appreciation of historical connections." — PARENTING

Paul Fleischman is the author of many acclaimed books for children and young adults, including Newbery Medal-winner JOYFUL NOISE: POEMS FOR TWO VOICES, Newbery Honor Book GRAVEN IMAGES, and BULL RUN, winner of the Scott O'Dell Award for historical fiction. He observes, "Why do we study history? Because the past is who we are; it is a way of studying ourselves." Also by Paul Fleischman: A FATE TOTALLY WORSE THAN DEATH

Paul Fleischman was born in Monterey, California on September 5, 1952. His father is fellow children's author, Sid Fleischman.
