Summary

Summary

"What Rick Riordan did for the Greek gods, Fajardo has done for 'Beowulf': magnificent."

--Kirkus, starred review

If you liked Percy Jackson, you'll love Kid Beowulf ! Inspired by the epic poem "Beowulf," this fun new series follows the adventures of 12-year-old twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel as they travel to distant lands and meet fellow epic heroes!

In book one of the series by Alexis E. Fajardo, our heroes' destiny is tied to the past, when a prince named Hrothgar begins a quest for power--one that leads him to a fiery dragon, an enchanted sword, and an oath sworn in blood. But when Hrothgar breaks his oath he breaks his kingdom, and the only thing that will save it is a family he's forgotten and heroes not yet born...


Author Notes

Alexis E. Fajardo is a student of the classics--whether Daffy Duck of Damocles--and has created a unique blend of the two in Kid Beowulf . Alexis has taught cartooning throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and currently resides in Santa Rosa, California, where, when not penning Kid Beowulf , he "works for Peanuts" at the Charles M. Schulz Studio.
