Overview

This is one of the popular Greek myths about Theseus and the Minotaur. The Minotaur is a monster, the offspring of Pasiphaë and the Cretan bull, that had the head of a bull on the body of a man: housed in the Cretan Labyrinth, it was fed on human flesh until Theseus, helped by Ariadne, killed it. The story is adapted here by Nathaniel Hawthorne for children. This story is taken from “A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys.” It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this timeless story.
