David Long won the Blue Peter Book Award for his skill in making history intriguing, entertaining and enthralling for young readers, and he does it all again here in this excellent portrayal of what it was like to be a Viking. The picture he paints is clear and fascinating, describing everything from Vikings’ everyday family lives to their expertise as craftsmen, merchants, farmers and explorers. He also outlines their impact on our lives here in the UK today, and on the wider world. With maps and diagrams and lots of lively illustrations this is as inspiring as it is informative, and in Barrington Stoke’s trademark dyslexia friendly format, accessible to all readers.
