Banished from his homeland, Viking dog Beowuff finds himself shipwrecked on a troubled island. Its King needs a champion. His hall is under attack from the hideous Hendel - an evil chicken of monstrous proportions. About the book: Beowuff's story echoes the tale of 'Beowulf' - one of the earliest recorded poems in Old English (Anglo-Saxon). 'It was surely only a matter of time before the creator of the witty and popular Spartapuss series of adventures, set in a feline-focused version of ancient Rome, found another historical direction to explore with his tireless punnery and scholarly attention to detail. Beowuff is a hilarious reimagining of the earliest recorded poem in Old English, combining shamelessly silly wordplay (for example, our furry and fallible hero must defeat Hendel, an evil, giant chicken) with authentically Anglo-Saxon literary language and conceits.'
