Exciting storytelling combined with a real maze puzzle.

King Minos keeps a strange and dangerous beast in the maze of narrow corridors beneath his castle, known as the Labyrinth. This is the dreaded Minotaur who, every nine years is fed a horrible meal of seven young men and seven young girls from Athens, sent down to the Labyrinth to their deaths. Once inside the Labyrinth, no one is ever able to find their way out . . .

Will Theseus kill the Minotaur? Will he be able to get out of the maze? Follow Theseus on his quest, through the Labyrinth, and see if YOU can spot where the Minotaur is lurking, and if you can follow the thread and help Theseus escape?

Industry Reviews

"This is a nice accessible book for introducing Greek Myths to younger children, but would also support less able readers as a topic resource for Ancient Greece curriculum projects." "Young audiences will particularly enjoy spotting the monster's whereabouts as they turn the pages taking Theseus closer and closer to the deadly creature." "The myth of Theseus and the Minotaur is engagingly retold with illustrations that are inspired by Minoan art."
