No challenge was too great for the mighty Theseus of Athens, not even the Minotaur, the dreaded half-man, half-bull that guarded the Labyrinth on the Isle of Crete and demanded human sacrifices from its neighbors. With only his sword and a ball of twine Theseus slaughtered the beast and returned triumphantly home. Well . . . it wasn't quite that easy. With a light and animated feel, Cynthia Bishop, Mark Austin and the Full Cast crew read award-winning British children's author Geraldine McCaughrean's witty and poetic retelling of Theseus's long life of battling monsters, tragic mishaps, and lost loves. In this bold and cautionary tale, the brash, egotistical Theseus turns out to be one of the more complex, human, and star-crossed characters in Greek myth.
