Josh is very brave, there are only a few things that scare him. His granddad tells him great stories but sometimes they are scary. This time when he stays over his granddad tells him all about the vikings. Josh likes the sound of them and decides he wants to be one. He talks to the viking gods and sets out to do the sort of things vikings do. It turns out that Josh makes a pretty good viking, proving this when he stands up to the bullies, with surprising consequences.
This is a wonderful little story that embraces the imagination, individuality and standing up to the bullies. Josh is a wonderful character. The story is incredibly charming, and the illustrations wonderfully complement the text.
Recommended for any child with an imagination and the courage to dream.
