    This fun, creative book is the perfect choice for a read-aloud.

    This fun, creative book is the perfect choice for a read-aloud.  




    "Five bored Vikings went out hiking, looking for adventure, something daring, bold and new.  So they thought they'd hunt a dragon, and tie it to their wagon, take it home and chop it up and make a dragon stew!"  But when the Vikings set off to find their dragon, they get a big surprise...




    Young and old will laugh at the antics of this motley crew as they go to round up a dragon for their dinner.  None of them have a clue what a dragon even is, but does that stop them?  No way...they have made up their mind and that is exactly what they are going to do.  They pack some sardine sandwiches, board their Viking boat, and watch out dragon here they come.  




    They remember to pack a poking stick, (a long pole with a floppy hand tied to it to actually poke). That is a good thing if you meet up with a dragon. They manage to scare off a giant squid by dangling smelly, old socks at him.  That was ingenious for sure.  They secure themselves tightly to a killer whale of all things to hitch a lift to Dragon Island.  All good so far but they are not prepared at all when they finally meet up with the dragon. 




    The surprise ending will have kids, and adults, laughing out loud. Written in rhyme and including such captivating ingredients as : squelchy bogs, smelly socks, dragon poo and quirky, hilarious characters and beasts, this book will be a hit for sure.  I like the fact that the Vikings include a girl in their crew. Very wise and inclusive. 




    The illustrations are humorous, quirky and very detailed pulling the reader into the delightful rhyming text. My favourite? I loved Grim and his hairy armpits.  I laughed right out loud. Perfectible. I enjoyed  the book immensely and highly recommend it.
