Children's LiteratureYoung readers will learn about the epic tale of Minos and his desire to be heir to the throne in this colorfully-illustrated book. Pasiphae's delivery of the Minotaur is simplistically explained to the reader. The illustration of the Minotaur is gruesome—especially when seen with the tail end of a rat hanging out of its mouth. On one page is the story text while on the opposite page an "Ask the storyteller" question and answer are provided. The illustrations—with the organizational structure—ease the comprehension of the story of Minos. A table of contents, introduction, glossary, a "who's who" with pronunciation key, and an index are included. This title is part of the "Ancient Myths" series. 2005 (orig. 2004), Picture Window Books, Ages 8 up.
