Vulgar the Viking and the Battle of Burp by Odin Redbeard


Vulgar the Viking and the Battle of Burp by Odin Redbeard

Vulgar can't believe his luck. He's going on a school trip in a real, live longboat, with oars and everything! And they're going to visit Burp, where a long-ago battle once took place between the Vikings and the, er, Burpers. It was a mighty battle, which the Vikings totally lost. But this time, Vulgar's going to re-write history. He's up for a bit of historical re-enactment, and is sure, one way or another, that a great and noble victory will be his!

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.
