Beowuff and the Horrid Hen - can war-shy Anglo Saxon dog Beowuff live up to the legend of his glorious namesake? Set in a world
ruled by dogs where people have never existed, Beowuff is packed with historical detail. Warning! Features a horrible hen called Hendel.
Anglo-Saxon dog Beowuff faces his most fearsome foes yet, a marauding Viking war-pack known as the Dragon Raiders. Can Beowuff and his weak-witted friend Arnuf save the monastery from these thieving heathens?
Beowuff’s adventures might sound familiar to history lovers, because they echo the ancient tale of Beowulf (1000 A.D.), the earliest recorded poem in Old English. Only in this saga, people do not exist, the world is ruled by dogs!
