Synopsis

Viking Longship by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Learn all about the Viking way of life as we sail with Uggla, Grim and their grizzly crew. Listen to stories about the Norse gods, watch the Viking craftsmen at work, raid a church and attend a warrior's funeral. With flies, beer stains and bloody fingerprints plastering the pages, this is a book that will have the Vikings springing from its pages. Part of the Fly on the Wall non-fiction series based on 'fly-on-the-wall' reporting.

Reviews

Informative yet entertaining - the excellent, colourful illustrations are humorous and give children an idea of what it might have been like when the Vikings were around. 5-7 Educator A cracking good story and an engaging narrative voice are the two key characteristics guaranteed to keep young readers

... illustration, design and writing work in perfect harmony to create a lively cast of Vikings, whose story keeps you turning the pages. The illustrations have a gorgeous, fresh, drawn-from-life feel. -- Nicola Davies Guardian There is so much detail in this book and the pictures and the story are so interesting that I thoroughly recommend it.
