This is the first in a funny, action-packed series, where everything you thought you knew about Vikings is turned on its head.

Meet Thorfinn, no ordinary Viking. Unlike the other Vikings, who like to pillage and plunder, Thorfinn likes washing dishes and making cups of tea. Unfortunately for Thorfinn, his dad is Harald the Skull Splitter, the toughest Viking of all, who fed-up with his son’s nice behaviour, sends him on a voyage to Scotland to earn his Viking name and learn how to be a real Viking. Will Thorfinn survive the journey with the other tough Vikings?
