Great adaptation of Beowulf for kids. The language is simplified but the story is fully in tact.

The stock summary is pretty much accurate. Though this is likely aimed at children there is no reason adults can't read it if they desire a retelling of Beowulf without the verbosity, obscure words and poetic (but sometimes confusing) euphemisms. Hey, one could always read this then work up toward the adult editions.

I started reading this after my 6 year old son picked it out at the bookstore. It greatly impressed him. I read it just to see what he'd been up to. A good retelling for children - though probably not for 6 year olds. I'm interested in checking out some of the other books in the Kingfisher Epic series.
