How to Live Like a Viking Warrior
Author: Anita Ganeri
Illustrator: Mariano Epelbaum
Publisher: Hungry Tomato; August, 2015
32 pages
Content: Some violence


Description from the back cover:

Join Olaf the young Viking on a voyage of discovery around his world. Learn
how to survive in those tough, adventurous times as he teaches you how to:

● train for battle
● choose your armor
● sail in a longship
● raid other lands

Do you have the skills and guts to be a Viking warrior?

My thoughts:

I thought the book was well researched and organized.
It was teeming with clever, colorful and charming illustrations.

I think the key word for this book is “warrior.” So even though I didn’t
care for the parts about plundering, that’s what Viking warriors did. The
author stayed with her goals and succeeded in bringing to life the plight
of these ancient warriors. I especially liked the savvy format.

I was given a copy of this book from Hungry Tomato Publishers through Net Galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased opinion.
