Norman the Norman from Normandy

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

Norman the Norman from Normandy is the son of the feared and respected Great Big Norman who was killed in battle and whose body was shared between three graves from the three Bretons from Brittany. Norman vows to visit the graves to pay his respect, but accidentally finds himself avenging his father’s death by killing the three Bretons with his father’s outrageously big broadsword. Norman returns to his home a hero - but none the wiser as to why!

Philip Ardagh’s extra-silly sense of humour is on full display in this brilliant new addition to Barrington Stoke’s excellent Little Gem series.

Packed with colour illustrations and fab extras, such as Norman jokes and a quiz to discover which kind of Normal soldier you are, this is a perfect little package for emerging readers who like their stories seriously funny.
