Dancing With Bulls, by Alan Cook- Four Star Review

“Dancing With Bulls” By Alan Cook is a cute young adult book based strongly on Greek history and mythology. It involves two boys traveling back into time and landing themselves directly in the myth about the Minotaur in Crete. Of course, myths are always based on reality but the story reveals the truths the myth was founded upon, which isn’t exactly the story you know and love. The book is well explained, well written, and beautifully illustrated. The illustrations, in fact, I was truly in awe of. Just gorgeous! The ending was a little blunt. Anyone who follows my reviews know that this is a deal breaker for me. However, I will say that although the ending is a bit blunt, it still manages to wrap up the story nicely. Maybe I’m just rather picky. Either way, I was intrigued and am seriously debating on reading some of the other stories in this adventure series. I would highly recommend this book to young adults between the ages of 13 and 16. Adults who enjoy mythology, history, or who need a short read to pass some time will probably also greatly enjoy the book.
