Beowulf (Usborne)

The classic story fabulously illustrated and retold for children ready to tackle longer and more complex stories. Fearsome monsters stalk the moors of ancient Denmark, murdering anyone they catch. But then a warrior comes from overseas. His name is Beowulf. He kills monsters… Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.

Our Review Panel says...

Beowulf is the story of monsters, warriors, journeys and battles. The pages of this Usborne version of the Anglo-Saxon classic Beowulf are filled with rich but accessible language and engaging illustrations. This Usborne version is the most accessible version of Beowulf for Years 3 and 4 – or reluctant readers in older years. You can also purchase an accompanying 2-week English planning pack from Ks2history.
