The acclaimed author and illustrator of SIR GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT return with an exhilarating edition of Britain's oldest epic.

Long ago there was a Scandinavian warrior who fought three evils so powerful they could destroy whole kingdoms. Standing head and shoulders above his comrades, Beowulf single-handedly saves the land of the Danes from a merciless ogre named Grendel and then from his sea-hag mother. But it is his third terrible battle, with the death-dragon of the deep, in which he truly meets his match. Lovers of heroes, monsters, and the drama of battle will find this retelling as enthralling as it is tragic.

A very good updated version of "Beowulf" in modern English.

I read this aloud to my 4 and 8 year olds and they LOVED it. They were very sad when it went back. I would far rather read this style of remade classic than fairy tales. It is a challenge to make it through, but the language is rich and complex without being overwhelming for the speaker.
