The story of a homecoming to Ithaca, set in Ancient Greece.
When Athena learns that Odysseus is in trouble, she has to go and help him... But will she make it in time? God meets mortal in this charming children's book. Both gods and humans develop as events unfold. When Odysseus tries to slay his last fleeing enemies, Athena opens his eyes to read what Father Zeus has written in the sky: that human kind must learn human kindness.
When Zeus gets promotion and tries to control the British weather as well as the sunny Greek sky, He learns just how surprising this Universe can be. But however far She may stray from Her blue Mediterranean, or however near She may be, Athena will always keep a soft spot for that wily hero from the little island of Ithaca.
