This is the tale of a Viking warrior who lived hundreds and hundreds of years ago. His name was Erik – Erik the Viking.

Erik is in search of the land where the sun goes at night. But as Erik and the crew of his ship The Golden Dragon set off in search of adventure, little do they know that their courage, skill, strength and stamina will all be tested to the extreme…

Winner of the Children’s Book Award, The Saga of Erik the Viking begins a daring and dramatic adventure series updating Nordic sagas for a young audience. Pairing the award-winning talents of Monty Python’s Terry Jones and the beloved Michael Foreman, this reedition is perfect for reading aloud and is sure to enchant young readers.


Terry Jones was perhaps best known as a scriptwriter and member of the Monty Python team. He was a successful historian, performer, director and writer for film, radio and television. His children’s books have been enormously popular, including Bedtime Stories, The Knight and the Squire, The Lady and the Squire, Nicobobinus and The Saga of Erik the Viking.
