A stunning prose retelling of the Beowulf legend from award-winning Brian Patten with fabulous artwork by new Children's Laureate Chris Riddell. Jacket foiling and neon pantone print interiors combine for a really fabulous Little Gem. The monster Grendel has awoken and the townspeople are terrified. Even the King has abandoned his great Hall. Hero after hero comes to slay the monster, but no one can outwit Grendel. Only Beowulf has a chance. But when Beowulf finally triumphs, an even greater horror awakens. Grendel's mother, the Hag, wants revenge on the slayer of her son.
