Reviews

All my friends like Dr Who so I know they will like this. Billy, age 6 It's got scary bits, exciting bits and you don't know what's going to happen in the end so you just have to read it. Daisy, age 7 It's exciting and dramatic. Ella, age 8 It's exciting to read about different planets. Lauren, age 7 It's really fun and you don't know what's going to happen next. Richard, age 8 It's definitely worth reading. It's really different. Thomas, age 8

TONY BRADMAN Q&A:

If you were a Viking warrior, what would your name be? And what about your battle cry?

Which of the places in the book would you most like to visit: Russia, Norway or Constantinople? Why?

If you were a Viking warrior, and could have any person from history/film/books in your gang – who would you choose? And Why? What would the gang be called?

I’d pick all the great Viking warriors – Harald Hardnut, Erik Bloodaxe, the Godwin brothers Tostig and Harold, maybe Thor the Norse God, Beowulf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir and Faramir from Lord of the Rings and loads of others. What would we be called? Why The Cool Vikings, of course!
