Having read Theseus and the Minotaur and Pandora's Box. In Pandora's Box it start as Pandora been sent down to earth to cause trouble and she open the special box and hope comes last to help the humans. The people of Athens were getting terrorized by Minos the king of Crete. Theseus decides to go and save the day. And Theseus
goes on a quest.
Theseus and the Minotaur follows the classic structure by a classic fairy tale Theseus slew the Minotaur and marries
Aridane is the fairy tale princess Theseus is the fairy tale prince. Theseus is a brave hero who is strong, noble and has no fear. Pandora's Box follows the classic structure by a classic villain book. Pandora husband Epimetheus
was to watch what Pandora did with the box.
