Enthralled with Beowulf
Behold two wide-eyed brothers as they listen to the hero's tale of Beowulf. I do not believe they ever sat so still for a story before. Once the master story teller closed the book and uttered those dreaded words, "the end," the younger two wrestled for the book to pour over the illustrations. With a surprised and curious look on his face, my 4 year old exclaimed,
"What?! You mean Beowulf's a guy? Where's the wolf?"You'd think dragons and ogres would be enough. It is a story for a man cub, is it not? The girls were not so easily impressed.
