This is a really cool book about Vikings that young readers will love. Adults will like it too just because it tells some really neat information. This book tells about Viking daily life and it includes their alphabet and how it corresponds to ours. This makes a fun little activity trying to write in the Viking alphabet. The book also includes a story about Thor and the Giants. The giants trick Thor making him believe he was a failure. Wonderful and interesting book I would read again.
