The best version of "Beowulf" isn't called "Beowulf" - it's called "The Geat - the story of Beowulf and Grendel". It's not called "Beowulf" because it's not just another retelling of the old Anglo Saxon poem. Over the last ten years or so John Harris has developed an enviable reputation for his retelling of "Beowulf" - schools all over the country ask him back to tell the story every year as part of their curriculum. In that time the craft of telling the story to real children has combined with considerable research to produce the version we have here. "The Geat" is perhaps the nearest we'll get to the story that was told in northern Europe around the firelight for over a thousand years before "Beowulf" was written. It's one of the earliest horror stories, and certainly one of the best.
