Theseus The King Who Killed the Minotaur
—Robinson, Tony, 1946-

Theseus must fight a giant monster and escape from a labyrinth. And that's just the start of his troubles ... After being saved from death as a baby, Theseus had been educated by Daedalus and coached by Hercules. Then he had gone on to fight the Great Tosser, fall into the clutches of Pine Bender and duff up his Uncle Laius. He even managed to sail a ship, get married and visit the Underworld. Oh -- he killed a minotaur as well. All in the space of this book! Theseus certainly was some hero! Or was he? Theseus: The King Who Killed the Minotaur is the final instalment in a humorous three-part retelling of the great Greek myths, which also includes Odysseus: The Greatest Hero of Them All and Odysseus: The Journey through Hell.
