THE VIKING BOY BY VICKI WOOD AND BRIGITTE MAY







While Vicki Wood got off to a late start creating children's books, she's certainly made up for time in the past year. After launching the successful Sippy & Sunny book with daughter Kelly Elsom and illustrator Bec Winnel, in the past 12 months she's released a range of new books.

We wrote about the follow-up to Sippy & Sunny, A Poem for Sippy recently. Now there is another title to add to the growing collection - The Viking Boy. This time the book is brought to life by Brigitte May. Vicki has a knack for finding and collaborating with wonderful illustrators who imbue her stories with their own magic touch.

The Viking Boy tells the story of Captain Finn who has a special relationship with the ocean. He is able to communicate with whales, hear tales of the sea from an albatross and learn about a whale's song that makes grown men cry. 

It's a story about respecting the ocean, and all who live in it. It's about looking back in history but also considering the legacy that we leave.

Another special story from Unclebearskin Productions.
