Kid Beowulf

Fajardo, Alexis E.

Kansas City, Mo. : Andrews McMeel Pub., a division of Andrews McMeel Universal, [2016]

223 p. : chiefly col. ill., col. maps ; 23 cm.

"Most boys don't slay sea serpents or have an actual monster for a brother, but Beowulf is not most boys. This is the origin story of twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel separated at birth and reunited by an extraordinary family: their grandfather, the imperious King Hrothgar; their monstrous (but loving) mother, Gertrude; their fire-ghost of a father; and their other grandfather--the towering, one-eyed Dragon whose bloodline links them all in their ancient home of Daneland. Oh yeah, there's also a pig and a talking sword!"--Back cover.
