Odysseus in the Serpent Maze, by Jane Yolen, is a book about a young boy named Odysseus who wanted adventure. This story takes place in Greece many millennia ago. The main character Odysseus is bored and wants adventure. Things get interesting when he and his friend and to other kids get stranded in the ocean. In the end they land in Crete and have to go inside the labyrinth! Just kidding (though that does happen). In the end they get back home. This is a good book but is a bit cheesy at times and I give it 7 out of 10 stars. I liked how they got into Daedelus’s workshop. But did not like all the cheesy parts. The thing I will remember most about this book is the ocean.
