Read and Review: Maze of the Minopaw
My name is Toby. I am 7 years old, and I like going mudlarking on the river Thames, and fossil hunting when I get the chance. My favourite mudlarking find is a clay pipe and lots of iridescent glass.
I have read and reviewed Maze of the Minopaw by Robin Price. It is the third book in a series called The Olympuss Games, and was published in May 2015.
I also read the first two books in the series: Son of Spartapuss and Eye of the Cyclaw. The books are published by Mogzilla...
The Olympuss Games is a series of books set in ancient Greece and ancient Rome. The stories are about cats who have to go to school to become gladiators. In the books, there are no humans, there are only cats. The place names are like historical names, but they are changed to sound like cat names – Egypt is Fleagypt, Spain is Hisspania, Italy normally looks like a boot, but now it looks like a cat's claw!
Maze of the Minopaw is the third book in the series, and it is my favourite.
Furia and "Son of Spartapuss" (S.O.S.) have been chosen for the Olympuss Games, but on the way to Mount Olympuss, they get shipwrecked and have to ask mean King Minos for help. He makes them fight, and when they lose, they become slaves working on a giant maze, the "Slobberynth", which has an evil creature walking around it at night. They are told that it's no use trying to escape, but one night, Furia and S.O.S. walk into the maze...
If you want to find out what happens next, you'll have to read the book!!
I don't think I learnt anything new from the book, but the more you know about myths and history, the more you understand the names in the book.
I give this book 10 out of 10, and I am going to get the next book, too!
You can find out more about the Spartapuss books on their very own website.
