Thorfinn the Nicest Viking on the Lollies Shortlist

Thorfinn the Nicest Viking Book 1: Thorfinn and the Awful InvasionToday we received a very exciting email from Scholastic, telling us that the first book in the Thorfinn the Nicest Viking series – Thorfinn and the Awful Invasion – has been shortlisted for the first ever Laugh Out Loud Awards, known as the Lollies. In true Viking fashion (well, Nicest Viking fashion…) we’ve been celebrating with cups of tea and scones all round!

Now that the shortlist has been announced, schoolchildren across the country get to vote for their favourite book! Votes have to be submitted by teachers on behalf of a class, so if you’re a teacher and would like to register, head on over to the Lollies website to find out how! (It’s so quick and easy that even Ragnar the Granny-Wrestler could manage it…)

When you register, you can also download some brilliant lesson plans and activity sheets based on the shortlisted books, including Viking facts, jokes and secret codes!
