Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Early Reader Classic tale of the Iliad. Fits well as a reader in year 1 of a classical curriculum. Must be a fairly competent reader, although it works as a simple read-to, as well. With all the nonsense that so many books for new readers contain, you could do a lot worse.
