About the Author:

Mick Manning grew up in Haworth, West Yorkshire, and studied Illustration at the Royal College of Art in London. He has written and illustrated over 60 books, mostly with his partner Brita Granstrom. Their distinctive books have won many awards. Their first book, The World is Full of Babies, won the Smarties Silver Prize in 1996. Their other books with Frances Lincoln include the critically acclaimed Fly on the Wall series: Roman Fort, Pharaoh's Egypt, Viking Longship, Greek Hero, Tail-End Charlie and What Mr Darwin Saw. Both Roman Fort and Viking Longship were shortlisted for the English Association 4-11 Awards and Greek Hero won in 2008. Snap! is the follow-up to Yuck! which was a regional winner of the Highland Book Awards 2006. Recently Mick and Brita donated the entire body of work created for their book Fly on the Wall: Greek Hero to Seven Stories, the center for children's books Mick and Brita live in the Scottish Borders and have four sons.

Review:

Informative yet entertaining - the excellent, colourful illustrations are humorous and give children an idea of what it might have been like when the Vikings were around. 5-7 Educator A cracking good story and an engaging narrative voice are the two key characteristics guaranteed to keep young readers' attention from cover to cover! illustration, design and writing work in perfect harmony to create a lively cast of Vikings, whose story keeps you turning the pages. The illustrations have a gorgeous, fresh, drawn-from-life feel. -- Nicola Davies Guardian
