My 14 year old daughter needed research on myths and legends; thus this book's title was obvious. As per her review, it was interesting, easy to read and informative. She was able to get all of the information she needed from the book and enjoyed reading it as well. She would definitely recommend it to her peers.
One of my favorite books growing up! Good for reading to ages 8 and above!
We ordered and received the book Myths and Legends (Red Hot Reads) by Anthony Horowitz. This book is a great addition to our library collection. Thank you so much.
I am on a Myths and Legends kick gobbling up everything I can get my hands on. Myths and Legends by Anthony Horowitz is very witty and the stories glide across the pages with humor and contemporary language that is easy to understand and relate to. Very well written. I loved his retelling of Pandora's Box. It was laugh out loud funny. Now, I believe I am going to gobble up everything Anthony Horowitz.
This book was ordered for bathroom reading. I hoped the old semi-familiar tales would be there. It was gratifying to see that they were.

Yes, the ancient stories are there, with a bonus: Instead of just retyping from an old source, it's my guess that the writer couldn't resist updating just a little.

The revisions include current examples that make it easier for the reader to relate to the emotions and actions. It was done with a wry wit. I didn't notice those touches at first.

It's funny, that when you're not required to read the classics, they're much more enjoyable; no analyzing homework interferes!
