Michael Morpurgo Epic Legends Pair

Go back to where stories began with a king of writers. Timeless English legends retold in magical style. First, Sir Gawain and the Green Knights takes you back to the time of King Arthur’s legendary Round Table, and his quest for the Holy Grail. How will Sir Gawain deal with the fearsome Green Knight, who rides into Camelot on New Year’s Eve and strikes fear into Arthur’s court? Next comes a new version of Britain’s oldest epic, Beowulf – a gripping story of hags, ogres, great heroes and dragons. Legends and lore aren’t just for the past. In the hands of master writer Michael Morpurgo, they’re still alive right now, for you.

  • Two key English legends retold by a master storyteller
  • Accessible writing which links the stories to the present
  • Beautifully illustrated by top artist Michael Foreman
