I wanted my grandson to read the story of the saving of the king. This was right in his reading level.

Based on the actual historical event, a lavishly illustrated bed-time story for your little Vikings:

In 1206, the king of Norway died. His queen was left in a dangerous and politically volatile situation, as their son, crown-prince Haakon, was only a baby. The Baglers, a league of corrupt power-hungry land-owners, saw their chance to eliminate Haakon, and place a king of their choosing on the throne.

It was Christmas Eve, and the enemy was on the move. Queen Inge found refuge in the homestead of a loyal follower. They had to get baby Haakon to a safe haven.

The Birkbeiners came to the rescue! These were a band of select-warriors, skilled in living off the land, experts in scouting and raiding, every one of them highly adept in battle-skills and skiing. Two of these Medieval Rangers carried the prince over the mountains in the middle of a snow-storm, beyond the reach of his enemies!

yes, it's true. while the children will love this tale of snowbound adventure, adults will love it equally as much! the woodcut carving pictures on every page are well done and lovable. the imagery is palpable, and is best read on a snowy night, cuddled up with a loved one.

We collect all books beautiful for our home education library,
this was another excellent find. Mary Azarian is an all-time favorite; Lise Lunge-Larsen tells the story with suspence and
wonder. Historical intrique for both boys & girls...a great example of Medieval times that take place somewhere other than
English countryside. This family appreciates the colorful text
that will surely enhance language skills. Holiday gift or for
home education, this one is a MUST HAVE!

Great story for young and old alike. Especially touching if you've been to the berkibiener in Wisconsin.
