Like all good mythology, the story of the Minotaur deserves at least a T rating—suitable for ages 13 and older—for violence, suggestive themes, crude humor and strong language.
With that content warning out of the way…
Bull, a highly anticipated verse novel for teen readers, debuted in March and has received much praise for a “salty, quick-witted retelling” of the Minotaur myth. Author David Elliott and the publishers at HMH Books for Young Readers have recast Asterion the Minotaur in this epic tragedy of power, lust and revenge.
