Product Description

Review

Informative yet entertaining - the excellent, colourful illustrations are humorous and give children an idea of what it might have been like when the Vikings were around. (5-7 Educator)

A cracking good story and an engaging narrative voice are the two key characteristics guaranteed to keep young readers' attention from cover to cover … illustration, design and writing work in perfect harmony to create a lively cast of Vikings, whose story keeps you turning the pages. The illustrations have a gorgeous, fresh, drawn-from-life feel. (Nicola Davies Guardian)

There is so much detail in this book and the pictures and the story are so interesting that I thoroughly recommend it. (Carousel)

This book amazinly covers many of the actual Heathen religious belief system. I was shocked at how actual and on point this book was. The art is thrilling, beautiful, an amazing artist for illustration. Any child wanting to know how viking were around the time when York was first settled to be turned into a mega trading center. They go over Viking funerals. I was pleasently shocked to find actual definitions in the index for anyone who wanted to know more.
