AKA Saga of the Sock Grendel.

Grendel, vile descendant of Cain, ravages the frozen Danish countryside.

Exhibit A- vile countenance. Look at the evil in those beady (buttony?) eyes.

The hero, Sanji- I mean Beowulf, comes to battle with him, bare-handed! Will he triumph?!

Beowulf rips Grendel's arm clean off (ah, the power of velcro) and Grendel runs away like a little baby. Later his mom comes and tries to tell Beowulf off for killing her son, but Beowulf kills her too. What a jerk.

But later, Beowulf gives Grendel his arm back and they become the best of friends. (This doesn't happen.)

The End.

Grendel is made of socks, polyfill, buttons, and a bit of velcro. He's for an English assignment-- "draw, paint, or build a visual representation of Grendel". I'm a senior in college, in a British Lit survey class, and this was our first assignment (along with "read Beowulf"- duh)

...best english assignment EVER.

ahhh. the days of beowulf. great story.
I had to recite lines #1-40 of the battle scene.

"out from the marsh, from the foot of misty
hills and bogs, bearing god's hatred
grendel came, hoping to kill
anyone he could capture on his way to high herot"

okay, so the punctuation may be off, but i still remember most of it!
great toy.
