Grade 1-3?Requiring a hefty mix of patience and persistence, this Where's Waldo?-like offering adds occasional simple riddles and memory tests to the compulsory multiple (and often tiny) character searches on every page. Loosely a story about a quest to retrieve a magic banner stolen by a dragon years ago, Viking Saga is a slight improvement on Stroud and Gale's The Lost Treasure of Captain Blood (Candlewick, 1996). Like its predecessor, it is presented in an oversized, picture-book format and features a comic-strip story line (dialogue balloons and all). An omniscient raven narrator tucked away in the corner; a longhouse lemming and his growing band of buddies; Hilda, the blond supergirl who disguises herself to join Harri's crew; Fenrir, the loyal and fearless wolf; and a large and busy main scene all revolve around the good-hearted but rather bumbling Harri and his faithful companions. A rainy-day diversion for kids who can color inside the lines.?John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX
