Synopsis

Whiff Eric and the Great Green Thing by Karen Wallace

Set in the Viking world of long boats, looting and grand adventure, The Goose Pimple Bay Sagas relate the hilarious tales of a ruling family with a difference. In book two, Whiff Erik, now ruler of Goose Pimple Bay discovers his brother, Spike Carbuncle at sea. He's escaped from his wife's island and he's taken a rare seed with him. Back at home, Whiff Erik plants the seed, but it's not long before a gigantic plan blots out the sky and a great green thing appears in the leaves. Oh dear, Whiff Erik knows they're in big, big trouble...

About the Author

Karen Wallace

I was born in Canada and grew up in a log cabin in Quebec. My childhood was spent playing in the forests and messing about on the Gatineau River. It was a wonderful wild time and in many ways is the source of all of my writing. Children's writers are an eccentric bunch. Someone once said they never grow up and in many ways, this is probably true in my case.
I write books for children from five to fifteen years old. The ability to recall how you felt and what your world was like at a particular point in your childhood is something that all children's writers share. It's like pushing a rewind switch and going back in time. Many of my natural history books for children, like THINK OF AN EEL, which won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, IMAGINE YOU ARE A TIGER, or I AM A TYRANNOSAURUS REX all reflect my own sense of wonder exploring the woods and the river around me when I was a child. Years later, I wrote about this childhood in my first novel RASPBERRIES ON THE YANGTZE, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Prize.
