This book is a wonderful introduction to the story of Aeneas, legendary ancestor of Romulus, who escapes from the burning city of Troy and wanders the Mediterranean. When he finally settles in Italy his adventure is far from over as he fights for the hand of princess Lavinia. After becoming familiar with this retelling readers will be better equipped to tackle Virgil's epic poem, written to glorify the imperial city of Rome. Be sure to look for The Illiad for Boys and Girls and The Odyssey for Boys and Girls by the same author.
