REVIEW – Infodad and The Song of Roland

Infodad.com’s Family Focused Reviews gives Kid Beowulf: The Song of Roland a stellar 4-star review!

The Song of Roland is a tale of heroism, battle, tragedy and hubris, lightened, rearranged and considerably altered (to the point of including roller coasters) in Fajardo’s retelling. Scholars of medieval literature will cringe, and are entitled to, but what Fajardo does so well here is to make these very old stories interesting and, believe it or not, relevant, by emphasizing characters’ relationships and interrelationships and by having them use modern slang and have adventures as likely to be comic as serious. The Song of Roland, Fajardo-style, is fun, something that can scarcely be said of the original.
