Deep in the labyrinth, the Minotaur feasts on human flesh, until Theseus comes to slay him. That's the myth, the story as we know it—or is it bull? Bringing a tough-talking, hip-hop sensibility to this timeless tale for young adult readers, the author of Voices: The Final Hours of Joan of Arc offers this rollicking novel-in-verse, letting the bull-headed monster show us the world as he sees it, with added commentary by Poseidon, Minos, and clever maze-maker Daedalus.
"Elliott's contemporary take on the classic myth incorporates modern slang, profanity, and a bawdy sense of humor into an accessible, highly entertaining, and original novel."—School Library Journal
