The famous Old English poem, brilliantly retold as a story for childrenFrom the Back Cover:
Out in the black fen something stirred. It was cruel and slimy and its eyes shone. Even the moon would not look at it. Its claws were red and its breath stank like a drain . . . For years, the evil monster Grendel has wrought havoc on the beautiful hall of King Hrothgar, attacking and eating all who live there and overcoming his bravest warriors. Nothing can stop him. Until news of the monster travels across the sea to the court of King Hygelac and to his nephew Beowulf. Beowulf is an unlikely hero. He¿s short and can¿t see well and is known for his goodness, not his courage. But inside his small body is the heart of a lion. Determined to help Hrothgar he arrives at the court with a band of his bravest soldiers . . . but without his sword. Grendel is no ordinary monster and it will take an extraordinary man to defeat him. Is Beowulf that man or is he too heading for a bloody death . . . ?
