Beowulf is the name of the biggest hero in Scandinavian history, and this novella tells his story. Born in Geatland (today's Sweden) Beowulf is a true warrior who, together with his friend Breca, grows up at the king's castle and is formed into a brave fighter. When he hears about a monster terrorizing the court of the Danes, he decides to set out with Breca and a few men of his own to kill the beast named Grendel. Grendel is lured out of the water by the sounds of warriors feasting and singing, and so Beowulf and his men expect it in the mead hall of the Danes. Beowulf slays the monster, but the nightmare does not end. Grendel's mother, a mighty water witch, has to be defeated before the Danes can drink their ale in peace again. This and many other adventures of the Geatish hero are retold in this book, accompanied by colorful illustrations. (23,200 words)
