Beowulf Summary

Beowulf by Morpurgo Michael

In fifth-century Denmark, a murderous monster stalks the night, and only the great prince of the Geats has the strength and courage to defeat him. Beowulf's terrifying quest to destroy Grendel, the foul fiend, a hideous sea-hag and a monstrous fire-dragon is the oldest surviving epic in British literature. Artfully retold and magnificently illustrated, Beowulf is made instantly accessible to children by the formidable children's book partnership of Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman.

Beowulf Reviews
