Description: The third book in the Mad Myths series, this volume sees disaster hit the school trip when Perce and Andy rescue a shipwrecked sailor and discover that knowing the wrong person could get them blown away.
Synopsis: Perce, Andy, Willard and Eddie are not enjoying the school Outward Bound trip to Bogmouth, it is wet and cold and most of the activities seem both unpleasant and pointless. Things manage to get worse however when they come across a strange old man on the beach who turns out to be Odysseus and once again the children are dragged into another Greek Myth. As ever, the two Steves manage to be hugely entertaining and educational at the same time.
