Theseus and the Minotaur
Greek myths are filled with stories of reward and punishment. Those who dishonored the gods could be sure of divine retribution. When King Minos of Crete broke a promise to Poseidon, god of the sea, Minos's punishment came swiftly. He was required to send seven boys and seven girls to Crete every nine years to be sacrificed to a monstrous half-human, half-bull named the Minotaur. Theseus comes to save the day using cleverness, bravery, and the help of friends.
