The Lovereading4Kids comment

Revolting – in the very best way – this is a rollickingly good adventure. Vulgar the Viking finds his home life in the town of Blubber exceptionally boring. If only things were like they used to be in the good old days of the Vikings when they went raiding and looting and plundering across the seas. Vulgar decides to take matters into his own hands and soon, with some help from his friends Knut and Freya, he’s off getting into some tight spots of a very Viking kind.

Synopsis

Vulgar the Viking and the Rock Cake Raiders by Odin Redbeard

Vulgar decides to carry out his own Viking raid: a voyage across the fishpond to plunder the bake-house. But as he and Knut sneak into the cellar to build their longship, they're caught by Freya, who demands to join the crew. Crammed into their makeshift vessel, along with Grunt the dog, the trio struggle across the pond and successfully make off with a haul of rock cakes. But when a squabble breaks out on the return journey, the trio end up in the pond, and Vulgar finds himself in very hot water.

Kirsty Stansfield from publisher Nosy Crow says of Vulgar the Viking: “This is a great series for young readers with a thirst for adventure. Who hasn't felt trapped by everyday modern living? Especially when you're seven. The idea of being able to skip school and go out into the wilds, looking for thrills and spills and elk manure to juggle, your big, loveable hound for company – idyllic!”

About the Author

Odin Redbeard

We’d like to tell you all sorts of things about Odin Redbeard. We’d like to tell you he’s a Viking who likes to pillage in his spare time. We’d like to tell you he lives on a fjord where he fishes from his longboat. We’d like to tell you that he wears a horned helmet when he goes down to the supermarket. But we can’t tell you anything: Odin Redbeard is – you’ve guessed it – a pseudonym. His true identity must be kept secret. Believe me, if we could tell you, you’d be the first to know. But we can’t. So please don’t ask us to.
