Children learn all about the Viking way of life as they sail with Uggla, Grim, and their grizzly crew. These exciting, authentic characters work, play, and battle, letting readers follow and identify them while exploring a famous culture. The book features vibrant tableaux, facts, and legends, with stories about Norse gods, images of the Viking craftsmen at work, a raid on a church, and the funeral of a mighty warrior. There's even flies, beer stains, and bloody fingerprints plastering the pages, making Viking Longship, the third entry in the popular Fly on the Wall series of historical picture books, a fun way for young readers to learn about history.

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 There is so much detail in this book and the pictures and the story are so interesting that I thoroughly recommend it.
