Grendel prowled in, hating all men and all joy and hungry for human life. So swift was his attack that no man heard an outcry; but when the dawn came, 30 of Hothgar's best and noblest thanes were missing.

Only Beowulf, foremost among warriors, has the strength and courage to battle with Grendel the Night-stalker. In this thrilling re-telling of the Anglo-Saxon legend, Rosemary Sutcliff recounts Beowulf's most terrifying quests: against Grendel the man-wolf, against the hideous sea-hag and, most courageous of all - his fight to the death with the monstrous fire-drake.

    " A childrens version of the story of the saga of Beowulf but as always with Rosemary Sutcliff well written enough to appeal to adults, with no important details omitted and told with an excellent understanding of dark ages culture. "

    " This was the version of Beowulf that I read in high school and I think that Sutcliff did an excelent job with this story-form version. It is a great introduction to the basic tale. "

    " I didn't read this edition...or at least the book I read didn't have that cover with the little "dragonslayer" addition to the title...And I wouldn't call him so much a "dragonslayer" as a "goblin-thingy-slayer" because that is far more accurate. "

    " I though this was a good book. It was related to many other lengens. I though it was short and had a ast ending that had nothing o do with th story. Malik "
