Synopsis

The Minotaur by Russell Punter

Theseus is determined to slay the monster that lives at the heart of the Labyrinth. But even if he succeeds, will he make it back home to Athens in one piece? Part of the Usborne Young Reading Programme, based on the Greek myth, aimed at children just beginning to read to help build confidence and ability. This title is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.

About the Author

Russell Punter

Russell’s earliest ambition was to become an artist, well third earliest actually, after dating Marie Osmond and becoming the first 9 year old to play the part of Doctor Who.

He joined Usborne Publishing as a designer in 1987 but since discovering his literary side in 2003, he has written over twenty books for the company.

He loves writing for children and his biggest fan is his niece, although he’s not letting the fact that she’s not yet old enough to read bother him.
