Beowulf: A Ladybird Expert Book by Janina Ramirez


'This accessible illustrated guide is a great introduction to the story, its origins and its enduring legacy' BBC HISTORY

- Which is more terrifying - a monster or its mother?
- Why did Berserkers run naked into battle?
- How was the story of Beowulf almost lost forever?

PLUNGE into the adventures of Beowulf, the 6th Century hero who defeated the monster Grendel, became king of his people, and slayed a tremendous dragon. Surviving in a single, burnt manuscript, Beowulf continues to entrance readers and inspire major works of fantasy today.


Janina Ramirez's Beowulf is an accessible and authoritative guide to the spellbinding world and daring feats of a poem remembered through the centuries.

Beowulf Reviews

This accessible illustrated guide is a great introduction to the story, its origins and its enduring legacy * BBC History *
The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information. * Shiny New Books *
