Nor may they remain in Valhalla, since they were not slain in battle; instead they are to be cast into the fiery Pit of Hel. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Written by Terry Jones, most famous for his membership of the Monty Python team, this is a wonderful tale, expertly spun, which won the Children's Book Award. The second collaboration between Jones and Foreman (the first was their "Fairy Tales", which one reviewer conceded, "The Brothers Grimm and Marx together could not have done better), a wonderful spoof on, and paean to, the Viking Age, and a rollicking adventure, to boot.

They are tested in various ways, go over the edge of the world and beneath the bottom of the sea, and fight inner demons as well as outer, until they find the land they seek and discover it is not for them. Erik learns from the wise woman Freya that Fenrir the wolf has swallowed the sun, plunging the world into the age of Ragnarök.

In gratitude for Erik's having saved Hy-Brasil, King Arnulf presents him with the Horn Resounding, which is much larger than Erik had imagined.One story memorably shows that courage and strength are not always useful if unaccompanied by wisdom, and that a leader needs the latter more than the former.

As a serious consumer of Monty Python related books, TV shows, movies etc it seemed 'right' to read 'The Saga of Erik the Viking' now. Bottom line; 'The Saga of Erik the Viking' is a very good children's book and a significant product of the (sadly now departed) creative imagination of Terry Jones.

There are plenty of strange, magical, fantastic adventures herein with Erik and his band of Norsemen having their characters tested for bravery, honesty, intelligence and loyalty. Another story teaches that sometimes even doing the right thing can lead to unfortunate consequences. Halfdan and his men are suddenly crushed to death by Erik's ship as it falls out of the sky, with Harald aboard.

But really Erik wouldn't be the main character without his amazing crew, and the stories really make that shine, that his Besties are what keep it going, and I love them for that. The film was inspired by Jones's children's book The Saga of Erik the Viking (1983), but the plot is completely different. As Erik and his brave band of men adventure forth their courage, strength, skill, wit and intelligence will be tested to the utmost. Each chapter forms a complete story in itself, and the landscape of myth and legend it magnificently depicted by Michael Foreman in this, his second collaboration with the author. Includes an exclusive foreword from Terry Jones and colour illustrations from superstar illustrator Michael Foreman.
