Good beginner for Beowulf, 1 Oct. 2003
I am reading this children's course for my graduate class in children's literature. It is a great recreation for children and uses literary devices in the actual beowulf. It is a little gruesome, as Beowulf typically is, and the illustrations aren't entirely intriquing and are only in black ink. However, they go well with the story. I would recommend this to young readers.
