A Beowulf's Tale

Brian Patten, illustrated by Chris Riddell
AUD $12.99

A stunning prose retelling of Beowulf from an author-illustrator dream-team.

One dark night, the music and singing wake a monster from a swamp … Warrior after warrior comes to slay the monster, but no one can outwit Grendel. Only the great hero Beowulf stands a chance – but even he is not prepared for the horror that lies in wait.
