'This is a new series, jam-packed with fascinating facts and stories about the Vikings. The illustrations are clever and funny with comic strips and fake newspapers adding to the entertainment factor. There are quizzes, puzzles and true-or-false questionnaires. One of the highlights is a crafting section where you can learn how to dress like a Viking and make brooches, helmets and shields. Although it might be a cliche, The Vikings is the kind of book that makes history fun'
