The Lovereading4Kids comment
Bestselling author Anthony Horowitz retells some of his favourite myths and legends from around the world with his hallmark vigour and energy. This one is Beasts and Monsters and the second one is Battles and Quests. He has put in the ingredients he would have enjoyed most as a boy reader – blood, jokes and lots of fast paced action.
Beasts and Monsters includes the traditional English story of St George and the Dragon and a very bloody version of the Greek story of The Gorgon’s head!
Legends! Beasts and Monsters by Anthony Horowitz
In the cold, dead eyes of the Banshee, and the hissing, spitting fangs of the Gorgon; in the fiery breath of the dragon and the razor sharp claws of the Sphinx - there is a thirst for blood and a murderous hunger. But it is a time of heroes, and the teeth and claws of these hideous beasts are no match for the lethal blades of such men.
