Product Description

One of England’s oldest and most exciting epic stories, brilliantly retold by the author of War Horse.

Beowulf is the gripping tale of a Scandinavian warrior who fights three evils so powerful they could each destroy whole kingdoms. Beowulf is no ordinary hero. Standing head and shoulders above his comrades, he saves the land of the Danes from a merciless ogre named Grendel. His trials are not over, for next he must defend his home from his evil sea-hag mother. But in his third terrible battle, facing the death-dragon of the deep, our great hero truly meets his match…

Michael Morpurgo

Michael Morpurgo is a master storyteller, weaving captivating stories full of drama and intensity that are coming to be regarded as true classics. Exploring the most profound subjects with a light yet powerful touch, his books tell unforgettable stories in simple, direct words.

Michael Morpurgo discovered his talent for writing while working as a teacher. “We had to read the children a story every day and my lot were bored by the book I was reading. I decided I had to do something and told them the kind of story I used to tell my kids – it was like a soap opera, and they focused on it. I could see there was magic in it for them, and realised there was magic in it for me.”

Living in Devon, listening to Mozart, and working with children have provided most of the stimulae Michael needs to discover and write his stories. He spends about half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories. “For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out – the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers.”
