Velda the Awesomest Viking and the Voyage of Deadly Doom

Author: David MacPhail Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/05/2021

Oi, you snivelling pig-dogs! Are you ready for a Viking adventure? Velda is a small girl with a big axe. The only problem is, everyone thinks she can't be a proper Viking because she's just a little girl . PURLEASE! She sets sail with Freya, captain of the dragonship Valkyrie, and her notoriously ferocious crew for a life of awesome adventure (and very loud belching). But when the Valkyrie and her crew are captured by the Queen of the Saxons, Velda is the only one who can free her friends. The small and mighty Viking must travel to the mysterious Islands of Deadly Doom, but there's just one problem, er, well more than one, actually -- she doesn't have a ship, a crew, or a clue how to get there... Join Velda on her quest as she makes some unlikely new friends and takes on terrifying tasks, all while proving she's the awesomest Viking around.
