Type of book: Fiction
Available Languages: English
Available Formats: E-book, Paperback

Thorfinn, only son of the village chief, is not your usual Viking. He likes a nice cup of tea, preferably with a scone, is always polite and enjoys making jam much, much more than fighting.

Thorfinn is approaching the age when he earns his Viking name. His father, Harald the Skull-Splitter, wants him to be something respectable, like ’sword-slasher’ or ‘earmasher’, and put an end to this nonsense about baking and learning to read. There’s only one thing for it: Harald will take Thorfinn on a voyage of destruction to put him to the test!

But between invading Scotland and meeting the fearsome Ragnar the Granny- Wrestler, Thorfinn will need all his wits to earn himself a name . . . and avoid getting thrown overboard. A hugely fun, laugh-out-loud adventure about using your brains and being yourself, this is the first in a series of Thorfinn books.
