In this thrilling retelling of the Anglo-Saxon legend, Rosemary Sutcliff recounts Beowulf's most terrifying quests: against Grendel the man-wolf, against the hideous sea-hag and, most courageous of all, his fight to the death with the monstrous fire-drake. An extra section in the back includes author info, activities and quizzes, a glossary, fascinating facts, and more.

Though Beowulf will be studied in the later grades of many high schools or early years of many universities, this particular version was retold by Rosemary Sutcliff specifically for children between the ages of 9 to 12 years. This would make an great add on book for Waldorf students during their medieval studies of grade six or as a Scandinavian extension and refresher once 4th graders have reached the 5th or 6th grades.
