    Beowulf, King of the Danes, is the bravest of the Anglo-Saxon heroes, who fights flesh eating monsters and fire breathing dragons over an inhospitable landscape. Nine-year-old Sophie knows the story of Beowulf well. She has enjoyed sharing it many times with her mother, a professor of Old English. Together they have even learned to read a language that no one has spoken in this country for over nine hundred years. But Sophie is fighting monsters of her own, monsters every bit as terrifying as those that Beowulf must face. Can the story of Beowulf give her the courage she needs?

    "A bold theatrical style, clear, accessible storytelling, and live music bring this Anglo Saxon poem vividly to life for a new generation." ~Voice Magazine
