Adapted Henriette Barkow / Illus. Alan Down
A dual language story with the full text in both Arabic and English.
For twelve years, Grendel, a ferocious and bloodthirsty creature, terrorises King Hrothgar's people, killing and devouring their bravest warriors. That is until one day when Beowulf, the strongest and mightiest of the Geat warriors, arrives on the Danish shores determined to defeat Grendel. When Beowulf slaughters the vicious creature, the kingdom rejoices but the celebrations do not last long. In all the excitement, the people of Hrothgar have forgotten about Grendel's keenest ally…
This gripping dual language adaptation of the Anglo-Saxon epic makes the legend of Beowulf accessible to readers of all ages.
