Theseus and the Minotaur by Hugh Lupton, Daniel Morden

King Minos and Queen Pasiphae's son isn't a child - he's a monster. To keep him fed, his parents demand that every kingdom send seven youths to Crete each year in tribute - And they're never heard from again. But Theseus is different. He's determined to slay the Minotaur and make it back to Athens in one piece. But how can he best a blood-thirsty monster?
