Great story line. I like the morals of keeping promises and everything has consquences that you do in your life. However, I'm not a big fan of the artwork. I think it was too vague for the storey. It could use more details to help draw children into it. Read full review

Review: Theseus and the Minotaur

User Review  - Jean-Marie - Goodreads

This was a read aloud to complement our Ancient Crete history lesson. This picture book offers a bit more to the story than the other two Minotaur books we read -- Monster in the Maze by Stephanie Spinner and The Minotaur of Knossos by Roberta Angeletti. Read full review
