Beowulf for teens as well as children

A teenager I know sent me a private email the other day that made me smile.

Howdy! I started reading Beowulf in English class but I had trouble understanding what was happening in the story, so I started reading the adaptation that you wrote. I’m sooo glad you wrote it because it is much easier to comprehend and the pictures are incredible. Thanks! I have not finished the book but I am excited for your version to help me as I try and break apart the lines, in the book we are reading in class. 

You’re most welcome! Glad to know my book serves as a cliffnote of sorts!
