'the book romps through 700 years of history, entertaining and educating as it goes. For young readers who like their stories to be gory and gruesome that is ideal. But,beware! It will also shatter some myths and illusions' – The Scotsman, Great Books for Children of All Ages

‘Lays the Viking myth to rest. Packed with fun and interesting facts, including details on every aspect of their lives, along with instructions on how young readers can live like a Viking today’ – Press and Journal

The Vikings and All That is a skull-splitting saga about the wild, seafaring warriors who burst into history in the 8th century and looted, plundered, pillaged and burned their way from their native Scandinavia to the British Isles and much of Europe. Packed with fantastic, fun illustrations of everything from the Vikings’ warships to their favourite board games, this is the book that answers all the key questions you might have. If you want sensible answers, packed with historical facts and thoughtful revelations about the Vikings’ civilised side then this is the book for you. But if you want boatloads of bearded, shield-biting maniacs bearing down on defenceless, sandal-wearing villagers, then this is DEFINITELY the book for you!
