  Also known as "The Children's Homer," this is Irish writer Padraic Colum's retelling of the events of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey for young people.   In this video I review The Children's Homer by Padraic Colum. In The Children's Homer Padraig Colum weaves The Iliad into The Odyssey to make a single narrative in two parts.
