The Last Viking Returns

Let the blogging (and pillaging) begin – from July 1


Hi everyone,

Norman and I should start by welcoming you to the blog. Welcome! And thanks for coming. We hope you have fun here.

We’ll be posting bits and pieces from July 1 onwards, all the way up until the book’s expected release date of mid 2011. You’ll be able to follow the process of the book week by week, and join in with competitions!

Ah, hang on, Norm’s just called- he’s reminding me that I’ve got a deadline to meet. Best get back to the drawing board for now…

  1. Is Knutt looking for a hot date? I know a very sweet but mischievous 5 year old girl, made of porcelain, with permanent blue swimmming goggles, has trusty dog ‘POE’ for protection (also has a super bark), who, it just so happens has a preference for young gregarious viking boys!!
    It looks great James!!

    • Hi Fleur, cheers 🙂 Maybe Knut and Heidi could have a playdate. He could take young Heidi for a sail around the backyard in his cardboard ship, whaddyareckon? Best not to take it out on the open sea though, it gets soggy, and Heidi (being porcelain) may be a little on the heavy side. (Don’t tell her I said that, I don’t want to give her a complex)
