This is the classic story written over a thousand years ago and retold for children ready to tackle longer and more complex stories. Fearsome monsters stalk the moors of ancient Denmark, murdering anyone they catch. But then a warrior comes from overseas. His name is Beowulf. He kills monsters. Each scene is atmospherically brought to life with Victor Tavares’ illustrations. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme is developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.
