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 Battles and Quests and the second one is Beasts and Monsters. He has put in the ingredients he would have enjoyed most as a boy reader – blood, jokes and lots of fast paced action.
In Battles and Quests he includes favourites such as The Minotaur and Romulus and Remus as well as less familiar stories such as Given to the Sun from the Incas and The Ugly Wife which is a Celtic tale. The result is two volumes of high drama revolving around some colossal characters.

Synopsis
