The Minotaur

The Minotaur

by Mary Schulte

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-6

King Minos's wife Pasiphae falls in love with a bull, and the rest is history. Well, mythology. This informative exploration of the Minotaur story covers its origin, the dreadful tribute of 14 Athenian youths sent to Crete each year to fight the Minotaur, and the hero Theseus's defeat of the monster in the Labyrinth. The final chapter discusses the Minotaur in popular culture, including Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series (Hyperion), video games, and the namesake rocket. Color illustrations include reproductions of Greek frescoes and some sketches and photographs. This is a useful resource for reports or for readers interested in learning more about the story.-Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
