Two Terrible Vikings with Francesca Simon

Two Terrible Vikings with Francesca Simon

Two Terrible Vikings

In this event you will join Francesca Simon, best-selling creator of Horrid Henry, as she introduces the third book in her Two Terrible Vikings series…

What if your parents WANTED you to behave badly? Set in the snowy fjords of a Viking kingdom, the terrible twins, Hack and Whack, are proud to be the best worst vikings.

With whip-smart dialogue, and accompanied by Dennis the Menace style anarchic cartoon imagery, The Two Terrible Vikings series is as sharp, funny and compelling as you would expect from the reigning Queen of Comedy.

You will learn about Viking history, Norse mythology and the wild world of Two Terrible Vikings: Feast with the King!

Praise for Two Terrible Vikings:

“As joyously anarchic as Horrid Henry himself, these two little boy and girl Vikings will have your children laughing out loud.” Cressida Cowell

Plenty of anarchic japes… Simon deploys her familiarly slick comedy to relate the mishaps of the Viking twins Hack and Whack.” The Daily Telegraph

Recommended: Ages 5
