Review quote

"From the birth of Greece, wrought by Poseidon's shaking his trident, to Theseus's rule over the mountainous land of the Ancients, this retelling of the hero's mythical adventures is a joy to read. Byrd masterfully interweaves the legends of Aegeus, Heracles, the Minotaur, Ariadne, and Icarus with the story of Theseus. Myths that are normally quite complicated become easy to decipher in this outstanding version, for Byrd tells the tales simply and clearly, including important details and tying up all loose ends so that everything blends together seamlessly." -School Library Journal, starred reviewshow more
