5.0 out of 5 stars A great boys story that's also good for girls....., 5 Jan. 2008
By 
This review is from: The Creature of Crete: Stories from Ancient Greece (Paperback)
This is exciting stuff - John Harris's version of some of the stories about the Labyrinth and the Minotaur. It's well written, well paced and the right length for both confident readers and more reluctant ones. Although there's lots of boys' own adventure stuff in it there's also some romance with the story of Theseus and Ariadne, with some very good points made about how boys and girls can get into some sticky situations by not being frank with each other from the outset - I wish I'd read it when I was younger!

John Harris is a regular visitor to my kids' school and by all accounts he is stunning. (The teachers say that they love listening to his stories as much as the kids do). This is his second book and I'd like to thank Amazon for stocking it because the high street bookshops only seem interested in stocking the usual rubbish.
