The cannibals ate the men like cookies. As each of Ulysses' men climbed up the cannibal thinking it was a tree. the cannibals grabbed them and shoved them into their mouths. As they tried to run away, the cannibals trampled over them, leaving only one crew and one ship alive.
Chapter 10: The Wandering Rocks
Ulysses said that their crew needed to take a break at an island, so they pulled over to explore the island. Half of his men explored the castle and found a deceitful woman named Circe, who turned those men into pigs. But, Ulysses found Hermes who helped Ulysses defend himself from Circe's magic and save his men.
Chapter 11: The Sirens
In the Land of the Dead, Ulysses saw his mom as a ghost, saw Achilles as a ghost, and saw Ajax as a ghost. Next, he saw one of his crew members, Elpenor, as a ghost. Elpenor had just fallen off the boat and was starting to form into a ghost. All four ghosts told him about what was to come in his long, dangerous, voyage.
Chapter 12: Scylla and Charybdis
The floating rocks followed Ulysses' boat with a sly, dangerous plan, like someone pushing Ulysses' boat into the cave.
Using the ghosts' advice, Ulysses plugged his men's ears with beeswax. But, Ulysses did not plug his ears, wanting to know what was happening, so his men tied him to the mast. Ulysses was tempted to go towards the beautiful voices but soon enough they were past the sirens.
Scylla and Charybdis were previously both naiads, but they were turned into vicious monsters who ate sailors and ships. Ulysses found a way to avoid both Charybdis' whirlpool and Scylla's monstrous legs but they had to be very precise. Somehow they got through, with Scylla holding onto their oars and eating six men.
