Join Olaf, the brave and heroic young Viking, in an hilarious and spectacular action-packed and fast-paced adventure of derring-do. Olaf is utterly irresistible and the slapstick humour that splatters through the pages will have your children writhing around in hysterics.


Olaf the Viking by Martin Conway

Olaf is desperate to find his father. It's been a long time since he disappeared, and it could be Olaf's big chance to be a hero. So when his uncle makes it clear that he is more interested in carousing, marauding, and pillaging than in finding his long-lost brother, Olaf decides to take matters into his own hands. With the help of a strangely-gifted slave named Loki, a magical war-hammer, and two barmy ravens, Olaf sets off to adventure! Join Olaf's hilarious and spectacular search in this fast-paced tale of Viking derring-do.
