Discovering the Vikings
By Federica Magrin (Text), Laura Brenlla (Illustrator)
Sail the seas with the Vikings, and uncover the secret of their lives and culture. One of their ships, the Drakkar, is waiting for you, but before going onboard you’ll visit a Viking village; meet their gods—including Thor, Freya, Loki, and Odin; explore myths such as Beowulf; and learn about their role as great explorers. As they read, kids can also detach press-out figures, with a stand for each, to play with.
