The Creature of Crete book cover

Commissioned By: John Harris is one of only a handful of full time professional Storytellers working in Britain, and the only one who works exclusively with children and young people.

Purpose: To keep the pages from falling out. And here's a review: "These are the tales of the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, and Theseus' triumph and deception of Ariadne. They are retold in an informal and humorous way, with modern dialogue and idiom, but still keeping faith to the tales and moral dilemmas. Crafted by John Harris from his work as an oral storyteller, the liveliness of the language is an attention keeper. It would be suitable for 10 upwards for either independent reading or reading aloud in class. The cartoon-like illustrations add to the humour and have their own poignancy, providing an opportunity for discussion in relation to the text." -The Schools Librarian Magazine.
