The greatest mythology stories for 7-9 year olds!

Every 9 years, in Crete, fourteen young Athenians are sacrificed to feed the Minotaur, recluse at the bottom of a labyrinth from which nobody comes out alive.

This year, Theseus, prince of Athens, volunteered to face the monster. As soon as he lands in Crete, Ariadne, the king’s daughter, falls madly in love with him. To save him from certain death, she decides to help him and finds a way to find her way through the labyrinth. Will she see him alive again?
