Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 2 Up—This tersely written, dramatically illustrated series rewards readers who savor the idea of frightening creatures duking it out. Introductory pages explore opponents' characteristics, mythical or folkloric origins, powers, strengths, and weaknesses. The section "Choose Your Battleground" identifies three locations (sea, land, or mountains) and explains how fighters would fare in each; a "Weapons" sidebar is included. "Fight On!" follows, accompanied by a "Food for Battle" sidebar describing combatants' stealthy strategies. "And the Victor Is…" sums up the conflict. Highlights: "Top Champion" discusses similar beings in myths from various cultures. "Consider This!" includes a list of critical thinking questions. VERDICT Fearsome warriors (some female) have strong appeal, especially for striving readers. Nonessential but recommended where wanted for school and public library collections. In journalism or creative writing units, teachers and educators could have students conduct "ringside interviews" or "play-by-play announcing." Artistic students could create posters promoting the battles. Copyright 2020 School Library Journal.
