The Lovereading4Kids comment

The fantastically brilliant and amazingly adventurous Saga of Erik the Viking by Terry Jones returns in this new edition with an exclusive foreword from Terry who is of course, most famous for his membership of the Monty Python team. It is a wonderful tale, expertly spun, which won the Children’s Book Award back in the 1980s and is fully illustrated throughout in colour by Michael Foreman.

As Erik and the crew of the Golden Dragon set sail in search of adventure and to find out where the sun goes at night, little do they know that their courage, skill, strength and stamina will all be tested to the extremes. They must win through against storms, against the dogfighters, against giants and enchantments, face up to spirits and to trolls. Read it to find out whether they achieve their goal...


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. A rollicking story: Erik the Viking's voyage in search of 'the land where the sun goes at night' takes him and his crew into battle with the elements and with other worldly giants and evil spirits. Foreman's paintings add chilling splendour to the tale.
