Beowulf by Kevin Crossley-Holland with illustrations by Charles Keeping

“This is the story of a young man who travelled far across the sea to fight two terrifying monsters - one who could rip a man apart and drink his blood, the other who lived like a sea-wolf at the bottom of a dark, blood-stained lake.
