What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When Odysseus goes shopping with his mom, she tells him to stay close, and he does—until he is tempted by The Odyssey-inspired play area in the mall and wanders off. He has fun at first, but when he can’t find Mom, he gets scared. Not to worry: Mom was always close behind, and, reunited, they make their way home together. Conceived and crafted by Greek-mythology expert Joan Holub and illustrated by the bestselling Leslie Patricelli, this book also includes a summary of the original journey of Odysseus.

Who Illustrated Don't Get Lost, Odysseus!

illustrator
Leslie Patricelli

I live in the mountain town of Hailey, Idaho. Spaghetti is my favorite food and I wear jeans most of the time. I have no rhythm, but I married a professional drummer! I live with my husband, Jason, my two daughters, Tia and Tatum, my son, Beck (who is studying jazz in New York City, but still has a bedroom), a dog named Shep, three cats named Oreo, Kiki and Red Devil, and a leopard gecko named Bananaz. I’ve been drawing cartoons and writing stories since I was a little kid. Sometimes my pictures and stories were a bit twisted, to say the least. This worried my parents, but I turned out okay!
