9780192721846: Beowulf

This is the story of a young warrior who travelled far across the sea to fight two terrifying monsters--one who could rip a man apart and drink his blood, the other who lived like a sea-wolf at the bottom of a dark, blood-stained lake.
His name was Beowulf and his story, first written in Anglo-Saxon in the 8th century, has become one of the world's most famous epics. Kevin Crossley-Holland has now retold the legend for children in strong, rhythmical prose accompanied by Charles Keeping's strikingly brilliant drawings. Together they bring to life the strength and power of one of the first great English poems.
