He has earned two Kate Greenaway Medals, and has twice been nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. Terry Jones The Saga of Erik the Viking Illustrated by Michael Foreman This is the tale of a Viking warrior by the name of Erik.

Maroon cloth boards bumped to the corners, otherwise covers and contents clean, binding tight and square.The Saga of Erik the Viking was written by Terry in 1983 for his son Bill and he later directed a film adaptation starring Tim Robbins.

My daughter at 7 thrilled at playing chess with death and watching the vikings engage in a battle of wits with the old man of the sea.

Erik sets out with a crew of all ages and professions from his village, including Harald, a Christian missionary who does not believe the myths. The first note blown upon the Horn will take Erik and his crew to Asgard, the second will awaken the gods, and the third will bring the crew home.

As Erik and his brave band of men adventure forth their courage, strength, skill, wit and intelligence will be tested to the utmost.

Please consider expanding the lead to provide an accessible overview of all important aspects of the article. The last chapter was therefore extra moving because it was about the main character playing chess with Death.
