Legends: Battles and Quests by Anthony Horowitz
Don't mess with the gods. And if they mess with you? Run like hell . . .
Including King Arthur, The Minotaur, Inca legends and more!
There was a time when monsters and dragons roamed the earth and the gods walked among us. A time of blood, swords and furious battles. A time of legends, heroes, darkness and death . . .
Anthony Horowitz is a prolific writer for film, theatre and television, but he is best loved for his brilliant children's stories, which include the internationally best-selling series about teenage MI6 agent Alex Rider. He lives in London and has two teenage sons.
Horn BookUnder Horowitz's hand, the tales from around the world have a casual tone, accessible language, dry humor, and just enough gore to keep reluctant readers going. Black-and-white illustrations add some excitement and visual interest. San Francisco Book ReviewBoth children and adults will enjoy these fast-paced stories, and the tales of swords, battles, and clever escapes will keep even the most book-phobic kid interested through the end. It's one of those books with the kind of passion that reminds us of why we loved reading in the first place. . . . This book is well-paired with its twin release Legends: Beasts and Monsters
