DESCRIPTION 

Theseus and the Minotaur

Son of both a god and a human, Theseus was destined for greatness. How did he become both the King of Athens and the defender of democracy? It was a long road for Theseus.
Theseus was an important figure in many significant and symbolic myths and legends. As a hero put to many tests, his challenges resembled the labors of Hercules. In Theseus and the Minotaur, we discover Theseus’ most famously known adventure written in an engaging, creative way for kids. We follow Theseus through the labyrinth as he battles the Minotaur, a half bull, half man living under the castle of King Minos on the Island of Crete. 
A must for fans of Percy Jackson and mythology--it will captivate young readers and nourish their imaginations.


WHAT IS A TOON GRAPHIC

TOON Graphics are stories written, or rewritten, with the illustrations in a comic book style. This is a highly engaging visual narrative that brings the text to life in a way that captures young readers’ imaginations and makes them want to read on—and read more. A Toon Graphic can make a difficult story easier for a young reader to process.  

The very act of using this style requires the user to make connections and draw conclusions. This pulls on their use of imagination and pulls them into the story in such a way that they connect with the story on a deeper level, especially for kids at that cross roads age of needing to “see” the concrete, but starting to understand or at least tinker with the abstract, its constructs and the bigger meanings.

This skill of the abstract and of seeing the bigger picture generally develops between 4th to 7th grades, depending upon the child. Toon Graphics can be extra beneficial during this age range and grade range, especially when dealing with difficult vocabulary, classical literature, such as Orpheus, and more complex, overlapping meanings.
