Legends: Heroes and Villains

Acclaimed children’s author Anthony Horowitz brings myths and magic back to life in his spellbinding Legends series. In Heroes and Villains, he brings a modern twist to a selection of classic tales, including the story of the heroic Odysseus, who outwits a foolish Cyclops, and the chronicle of the great warrior Achilles, whose death is brought about by the tiniest of weak spots. Whether cleverness, cunning or brute strength are employed to win the battle, this book plunges you into the thrilling heart of Ancient Greece and the great mythical struggle between good and evil.
