Stickman Odyssey, Book 1: An Epic Doodle by Christopher Ford, 208 pages, read by Angie, on 10/15/2013

Zozimos just wants to go home. Unfortunately for him he has been banished by his evil witch of a stepmother. Try as he might he can’t seem to find his way back to Sticatha. He encounters golems and princesses and heroes and monsters on his journey. He seems to always be in trouble, mostly his own fault. I guess I will have to read book two to find out if he ever makes it home. It has been a while since I read The Odyssey, but I am sure this is a pretty close retelling. :) Telling the story in doodles with a stickman as the main character definitely makes it more accessible for kids.
