Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Who would ever need to read a comic book again when this fabulous graphic novel series exists? Follow the Scandinavian Vikings as they explore the north Atlantic from AD 700 to 1023. The illustrations practically jump off the pages, and the text is divided between factual ground-laying and conversational discourse. A couple of pages at the back of the book provide more facts: Vikings are frequently pictured with horned helmets but their helmets were, in all actuality, hornless. Another fact is that when they traveled on land, they sometimes ice-skated, wearing skates they fashioned out of animal bones. A glossary, suggested reading and internet list and bibliography are also included at the back of the book. This title would be a welcome addition to a library or a classroom with book phobics as one cannot help but absorb a great deal of history through even a casual perusal. Thi is part of the "Graphic History" series that includes numerous titles, including Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, The Buffalo Soldiers and the American West and John Sutter and the California Gold Rush. Highly recommended. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 9 to 12.
