    1. A cute story about a little boy who wants to be brave—like the Vikings! His grandfather has given him a book about Vikings, and he's determined to be like them. His imaginary adventure into Viking territory in his valiant warship and alongside his trusty Wolverine companion is brought back to reality when the neighbourhood bullies make fun of his games. But having become a Viking, he's ready to face them with strength and courage and they turn away and flee. Though it's a nice thought for a ki [...]


    2. I loved it - even though there were enough themes to do a VCE essay on!The illustrations were an excellent match to our imaginative hero and I enjoyed that part of the story was being told just through pictures (ie. new baby in the family).Perhaps the best part was the actual Viking ship he built around the clothes line - too cool!



    3. This is one rollicking tale you can allow yourself (and any young vikings you know) to become fully absorbed in. Spiced with adventure, flavoured with historical fantasy, and laced with determination, Jorgensen takes us on a triumphant expedition of faith and facing your fears. All brilliantly illustrated by Foley, this one is sure to get your Berserkers fired up.


    4. I think it could have been edited down to be more of a standard length, but perhaps it was made longer so it would appeal to older kids? The story seemed fit for about preschool or kindergarten age, but it was oddly marketed at elementary students. The pictures were too juvenile, and the kid was, to be quite honest, too much of a weenie for anyone older than 6. It came across a little too lesson-y than I would have liked, but with a bit of tweaking it could have had the punch of a good Robert Mu [...]


    5. I fell in love with this book. It is not a simple story -- themes of imaginative play, Viking history, bullying, and new babies vie with one another for the reading, but that is where the charm is found. Life is not simple. The year two class to whom I read it, were fully engaged, and understood many of its different levels. It has inspired at least one to go home and read up on Vikings. I can see so many classroom applications and look forward to reading it again.


    6. This is a very convoluted story. I'm not really sure if the author's aim was to teach about Viking mythology, prepare for the birth of a new baby, condemn bullying, or if he just wanted to write a story about a little viking boy. I didn't care for it at all. The illustrations were great. I give it three stars because of them, and because every little boy loves Thor.


    7. This was a greta book with interesting details in it. I read this to my two sons last night, and afterwards they spent time going over it again and looking more closely at the pictures. Great pictures loved the 'getting back at the bullies' scene and the detail was spectacular.


    8. I think I missed the point. Maybe I was in the wrong head space. I read it to a grade 1/2 class & think I was trying to understand it from their perspective & it went over my head.Complex picture book.



    9. Great imaginary viking romp in a young boy's grandparents' backyard. He even manages to scare off bullies. Fun!
