Bull by David Elliott


Impressive verse retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. Author, David Elliott, writes the POVs of each of the seven characters involved in his version of the story and gives each one his own form of poetry to help distinguish the characters. This differentiation gives the book a super cool vibe. Dare I make a Hamilton connection? Elliott's use of modern, poetic words to convey an old story made me think of how Lin Manuel Miranda did the same. Poseidon's voice even had a bit of a rap beat (probs because of his unrestricted poetic form). Cool, funny, moving, quick.
