    Well known as one of the greatest heroic poems in Old English, Beowulf recounts the tales and adventures of the character with the same moniker. In the first adventure, Beowulf, a young nobleman from southern Sweden, comes to the aid of the King of Denmark by fighting the monster Grendel. In the second tale, after 50 years of peaceful rule, Beowulf is called upon to fight the dragon that has been terrorizing his country. Thought to be written sometime between the late 7th and early 11th centuries, the original author is unknown.

This masterfully retold version uses simpler prose to share the stories of Beowulf's epic battles with dragons and Grendel the ogre in a more readable way that is even great for reading aloud to younger kids. By H.E. Marshall, the story stays true to the original while making it more accessible to readers. 54 pgs, pb.

    This graphic novel adaptation of Beowulf brings the epic poem to a whole new audience. Striking, intense illustrations portray Beowulf's battles as he slays the dragon Grendel. (While beautifully done, the illustrations are dark and rather gruesome; you may want to preview before handing to younger readers.) Accompanying the illustrations is a new adaptation of the poem. This text is based on the translation by A. J. Church in 1904. According to the author's note, "This is a colloquial translation, and we have attempted to strike a balance between easy readability and the poetic drama found in our favorite verse translations…" This book is a great way to introduce Beowulf to reluctant or younger readers before studying the full-length poem. By Gareth Hinds. 128 pgs, pb.
