Velda hi-jacked the “Mangy Mutt” longboat from Rollo, but didn’t approve of the name.
The only way to change a Viking ship name is to get a little girl to pee in the bilge! Wait… What?
Velda the Awesomest Viking: and the Voyage of Deadly Doom, really lives up to its title.
Author, David MacPhail scribes down some EPIC adventures in this new release junior fiction
(The first in a series, I believe – or so the staring Seagull told me).
I really sympathise with young, little Velda. She is doing her sword-wielding best, to be the
most dangerous, fiercest Viking to exist! But things aren’t always what they seem:
As she continually finds out in her quest to acquire the much desired, Silver Tusk.
Along with her trusty side-kicks, is a useless (or not so useless, you’ll have to read it and find out)
crew of stow-aways consisting of an awful harp-playing Bard, a crafty Pict girl and an acrobatic Nun.
Together will they conquer the tusk… I mean, task ahead of them?
A most Viking-ny tale full of farty-humour and sarcastic blunders, captured in the
cartoon illustrations by Richard Morgan, suited for ages 7 and up.
