The sixth book in a funny and rambunctious series for 6-9 year-olds. Vulgar is a Viking boy who longs for the glory days of raiding, pillaging and enormous beards.
Vulgar can't believe his luck. He's going on a school trip in a real, live longboat, with oars and everything! And they're going to visit Burp, where a long-ago battle once took place between the Vikings and the, er, Burpers. It was a mighty battle, which the Vikings totally lost. But this time,Vulgar's going to re-write history. He's up for a bit of historical re-enactment, and is sure, one way or another, that a great and noble victory will be his!
We'd like to tell you all sorts of things about Odin Redbeard. We'd like to tell you he's a Viking who likes to pillage in his spare time. We'd like to tell you he lives on a fjord where he fishes from his longboat. We'd like to tell you that he wears a horned helmet when he goes down to the supermarket. But we can't tell you anything: Odin Redbeard is - you've guessed it - a pseudonym. His true identity must be kept secret. Believe me, if we could tell you, you'd be the first to know.
