The Lovereading4Kids comment
BOOK OF THE DAY - 19th NOVEMBER Artfully retold and magnificently illustrated, this companion volume to Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is made instantly accessible to children by a formidable children's book partnership.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Beowulf a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'Lots of adventure and alliteration...The pictures are really good too, I especially like the ones of the Death-Dragon.'

Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo
In fifth-century Denmark, a murderous monster stalks the night, and only the great prince of the Geats has the strength and courage to defeat him. Beowulf's terrifying quest to destroy Grendel, the foul fiend, a hideous sea-hag and a monstrous fire-dragon is the oldest surviving epic in British literature.
A small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review Beowulf. You can read their reviews below.
Ewan Young, age 10 - 'Lots of adventure and alliteration...The pictures are really good too, I especially like the ones of the Death-Dragon.' Click Here to read the full review.
Further praise for Michael Morpurgo.
With Morpurgo's expert retelling and Foreman's masterly spreads... this is quite perfect, as is the production. The Children's Bookseller on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
