The Illustrated Beowulf by Jake Starring: President Bill Clinton Danish Prime Minister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen and Pope John Paul II Cookie Monster Michelle Pfeiffer Boris Yeltsin Godzilla Hillary Clinton The A-Team David Letterman (the little guys in the castle) A quick note about this site: I made this site in the spring of 1998 as a project for my AP British Literature class. It was either this or bake a cake and make a scene from the story with the icing. I am no Beowulf scholar or enthusiast, so I'm not the one to ask if you need help with an upcoming test, research paper, etc. Sorry. And sorry but I won't be doing any other stories. Furthermore, when I graduate from college, I won't bother to move this site to my new host. If anyone wants to steal all the pages and pictures and host this site somewhere else, go ahead and do it.
