Thorfinn and the Awful Invasion

Publisher: Young Kelpies

Thorfinn is possibly the nicest and politest Viking that ever lived, which is absolutely no good at all from the point of view of his dad, Chief Harald the Skull-Splitter, who wants him to Viking-up a bit more. So Harald decides to send Thorfinn to Scotland on a boat full of nasty smelly Vikings to toughen him up - but will Thorfinn survive? Or is being nice the most heroic deed of all?

A hilarious historical comedy, Thorfinn's adventures will keep younger readers chortling, and the extra puzzles and games at the end of the book are an excellent addition.
