Siegfried and the Vikings

  • Young Adult


One day young Siegfried is fetching water from the river when he receives the fright of his life! A fierce dragon’s head looms through the mist in front of him. The mist clears revealing a longship containing more than forty grim-looking men, covered in chain mail, hefting swords and battleaxes. Who are these men? Why are they here? Siegfried discovers that they are Vikings from Norway and is so fascinated by these warriors and their leader,  Odo the Dragon Slayer, that he stows away with them on their departure. Little did Siegfried know that his life was about to change forever! This is a story of how one young boy, with natural abilities and a nose for treachery, saves the Vikings and finds favour and acceptance with Odo the Dragon Slayer and his mighty warriors.
