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.
Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Fall)
Stories from Horowitz's previously published Kingfisher Book of Myths and Legends are presented in these two volumes, modestly re-edited and with new illustrations. Under 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. [Review covers these Legends titles: Battles and Quests and Beasts and Monsters.] Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
