'For a long while Beowulf leaned on the blood-stained sword; his heart was pounding.

A man with the strength of thirty! Slayer of Grendel and slayer of the sea-wolf! A hero without equal in this middle-world!' The story of Beowulf was written down as an epic poem in Anglo-Saxon England.

It recounts the heroic struggles of one man against supernatural monsters.

Kevin Crossley-Holland's retelling unleashes the excitement in this tale of the triumph of good over evil, while unforgettable illustrations from Charles Keeping capture every brooding moment and explosive episode.

This new edition features rescanned artwork to capture the breath-taking detail of Keeping's illustrations and a striking new cover.
