Book of the Week (3/27/2017)

Bull by David Elliott (Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017.)

David Elliott, NH author of such gems as the "This Orq" books and many others for younger readers brings us an interesting and creative take on the story of the Minotaur, for a more mature audience. Having loved learning Greek mythology in English classes in high school, this retelling definitely caught my eye and peaked my interest!
"Much like Lin-Manuel Miranda did in Hamilton, the New York Times best-selling author David Elliott turns a classic on its head in form and approach, updating the timeless story of Theseus and the Minotaur for a new generation. A rough, rowdy, and darkly comedic young adult retelling in verse, Bull will have readers reevaluating one of mythology's most infamous monsters." --Amazon.com
Join David for a launch party of Bull at Gibson's Bookstore in Concord, NH, Friday, March 31st, 2017 at 6 pm!
