The Hiking Viking

by Laura Gehl,
Illustrated by Timothy Banks.
While the other Vikings love to holler and howl and battle and brawl, Leif prefers spending time by himself atop the beautiful fjord. But when it’s time for the Viking Games, everyone must participate. So in preparation Leif works hard to wrestle, throw spears, lift stones... But will Leif let down his clan . . . or surprise them? Highlighting the value of nature and earthly wonders, we are reminded to stay true to ourselves and look at things from a new perspective.
