" Well written intro to the Beowulf epic for kids. Treat yourself and read her beautiful take on the Arthurian legend--Sword at Sunset. " said.

" A clever and easily accessible re telling on the characters from Norsk legend Beowulf and his epic adventures. " said.

" Has to be one of the most fondly remembered book of my reading years! Rosemary Sutcliffe is beyond all reasonable doubt an expert in her field of writing, highly recommended. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

" 100 page retelling of Beowulf for children. Great introduction to the story - just the fighting bits, but enough of the social history to get a context.I read a really old version so pictures were dated and did not support the text.Loved it! " said.

" Czytane bardzo dawno temu, skojarzyłem przy okazji filmowej adaptacji. Pamiętam,że bardzo mi się podobała ta książka, ale miałem wtedy coś koło 7 lat... W każdym razie na pewno bardziej do mnie przemawia ta stylistyka aniżeli mity greckie. " said.

" This book was a great introduction to Beowulf for my boys! While the language is made up of older words and long sentences, it is prose that reads like poetry. I will definitely be reading more of her retellings to my kids in the future. " said.
