Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree Treetops Greatest Stories: Oxford Warriors of Honour by Brynhildur Thorarinsdottir

Egill and Thorolfur are brothers who don't see eye to eye. Egill is angry and tough, whilst Thorolfur is pleasant and cheerful. But the two make an unlikely bond when they fight together on a Viking raid. Hallgerdur and Gunnar may be husband and wife, but he is a man of tradition and honour, whereas she will use devious methods to get what she needs. Their differences have disastrous consequences. Then there is Olafur Peacock, who prefers to enjoy brief honour than to live a long life in shame. Taken from Icelandic sagas, these ancient stories conjure up powerful characters from the fierce, cold north. TreeTops Greatest Stories offers children some of the worlds best-loved tales in a collection of timeless classics. Top children's authors and talented illustrators work together to bring to life our literary heritage for a new generation, engaging and delighting children. The books are carefully levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book. Each book contains inside cover notes to help children explore the content, supporting their reading development. Teaching notes on Oxford Owl offer cross-curricular links and activities to support guided reading, writing, speaking and listening.
