'Hear and listen well, and I will tell you a tale that has been told for a thousand years and more. It may be an old story, yet it troubles and terrifies us now as much as it ever did, for we still fear the evil that stalks out there in the darkness and beyond.'
Some stories never lose their power to terrify, no matter how many times they are told nor the many years that pass with their telling...
This tale is of Beowulf, a fearless warrior who battles three evils so powerful that they terrorize the entire kingdom of Denmark. Standing head and shoulders above his comrades, Beowulf single-handedly slays Grendel, the murderous and merciless ogre, followed by his vengeful sea-hag mother. But it is in his third bloody battle, against the death-dragon of the deep, that Beowufl truly meets his match.
Michael Morpugo (Children's Laureate 2003 - 2005) breathes new vitality into the oldest surviving Anglo-Saxon legend with this masterly retelling of Beowulf, magnificently illustrated by the award-winning Michael Foreman.
