9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By H. Lucas on 25 July 2008
This re-telling of the Anglo-Saxon poem is powerful and dramatic. The brief introduction provides a context for the poem, notes various translations, including that of Seamus Heaney in 1999, and draws the reader on into the text with the words "You are about to enter a world of tough men and merciless monsters". There is a masterful alignment of truly heroic illustrations and powerful text. For example, in chapter three `The fight in the dark' there are dramatic illustrations of Beowulf's struggle with Grendel - and a text which reflects the awfulness. "The battle seemed like an eternity of darkness and tension, but we kept our discipline and eventually Grendel tired. His swinging arms moved in a less deadly arc, and the slavering jaws were too weary to spew forth much venom and rage." This ancient tale brings the brave warriors to life amidst the brutish and ugly monsters and will certainly capture the imagination of readers in key stage 2.
