Beowulf

Book - 1982
Rate this:
This is the story of a young warrior who travelled far across the sea to fight two terrifying monsters -- one who could rip a man apart and drink his blood, the other who lived like a sea-wolf at the bottom of a dark, blood-stained lake.
His name was Beowulf and his story, first written down in Anglo-Saxon in the eighth century, has become one of the world's most famous epics. Kevin Crossley-Holland has now retold the legend for children in strong, rhythmical prose accompanied by Charles Keeping's strikingly brilliant drawings. Together they bring to life the strength and power of one of the first great English poems.
"The strong, alliterative prose has something of the same quality as the splendid Old English verse. A remarkable achievement." -- Children's Books of the Year (England)
"...asks to be placed immediately in the hands of every child...reads aloud resoundingly." -- The School Librarian (England)
