Black Ships Before Troy by Rosemary Sutcliff

Black Ships Before Troy is a children’s retelling of the story of the Iliad. Nearly everything from Homer’s original is included. It uses language that children can understand. My 8 year old sometimes found it a bit boring, but my 10 year old thought it was quite a fascinating story. I highly recommend this version of the Iliad to anyone wanting to introduce it to their children.
