About the Author:

Yvan Pommaux is a beloved children's book author in France who is known for his detailed research and illustration style. In 1995 he was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris. Three schools have been named after him as a testament to the joy and educational appeal of his work for children. Theseus and the Minotaur is Pommaux's first book in English.

Review:

French author-artist Pommaux offers a solid graphic retelling of the life of Theseus, first published in France. ... Character bios, pronunciations, and an index round out a handsomely illustrated introduction to a classical hero.
—Publishers Weekly

Pommaux’s illustrations focus on light coloring and shading, making the sometimes brutal story gentle enough for younger audiences. Large splash panels really draw the eye and give a great sense of story, which should help students who may struggle to read the large blocks of text. ... Teachers looking for a great resource on this myth will be pleased. Added at the end is an in-depth glossary that further explains characters and topics only briefly mentioned in the text, making it an ideal resource for those learning about this myth for the first time.
—Booklist

A widely appealing tale in which a heroic warrior reclaims his destiny. ... The full-color art complements and enhances the narrative. ... An accessible, informative, and enjoyable read.
—School Library Journal

Sound effects and wry dialogue ... lighten the drama.... Pommaux’s suggestion that Theseus neglected to change his ship’s black sails because he was "distraught" over leaving Ariadne behind is a nice touch.
—Kirkus Reviews

Absolutely brilliant! Smart and well told -- plus the art is sublime.
—Jeff Smith, Author of Bone

An ancient story wonderfully retold in a perfectly ancient way, graphically, text and pictures more together than either could be alone.
—Jon Scieszka, author of The Stinky Cheese Man

Adventure, mythology, and a Minotour! What's not to like!
—Frank Cammuso, author of Knights of the Lunch Table
