    The epic Anglo-Saxon legend is brilliantly recreated by an award-winning author-and-illustrator team of Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman.

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, this is a perfect introduction to a famous tale.
