About this book:
"This is a tale of a Viking warrior who lived hundreds and hundreds of years ago. His name was Erik. His ship was called Golden Dragon and its figurehead was a fierce monster carved out of wood and covered with gold leaf. So begins this spell-binding series of adventures written by the newly acknowledged master of children's stories, Terry Jones. Dramatically reminiscent of the most exciting of Nordic Sagas, Erik and his brave band of men set sail in search of 'the land where the sun goes at night'. Through lightly undertaken, this quest into the unknown turns into an exacting experience for the courageous companion whose strength, skill, wit and intelligence will be tested to the extreme limits. Each chapter forms a complete story in itself, and the landscape of myth and legend is magnificent depicted by Michael Foreman in this, his second collaboration with the author. As one reviewer commented about their last book, Fairy Tales, 'The Brothers Grimm and Marx together could have not done better"
