Padraic Colum’s The Children’s Homer brings the classic tales of the battle of Troy and the adventures of Odysseus to a young adult audience. My hard-to-please youngest son enjoyed this classic as well as Greek  mythology long before Rick Riordan’s Percy and the Olympians series made them popular. His familiarity with the mythological characters contributed greatly to his enjoyment of Rick Riordan’s novels. Try a dose of Homer for your hard-to-please readers.
