Michael Morpurgo Epic Legends Pair

Go back to where stories began with a king of writers. Hags, ogres, dragons, heroes. Two timeless English epics retold in magical style. Arthur, High King of Britain retells the stirring stories of Merlin the wizard, King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table and the quest for the Holy Grail. Next comes a gripping new version of Britain’s oldest epic, Beowulf. Here, a brave warrior protects the land of the Danes from a merciless ogre, a sea-hag and a death-dragon of the deep. Legends and lore aren’t just for the past. In the hands of master writer Michael Morpurgo, they reach out into our present too.
