Thorfinn and the Awful Invasion, the first book in the Thorfinn the Nicest Viking series for 6-9 year olds, is a funny, illustrated, action-packed book for young readers which bridges the gap between Horrid Henry and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Prepare yourself for the wrath of the Norsemen! That is, if you don't mind and it's not too inconvenient... Everyone knows Vikings are ruthless barbarians whose idea of a good time involves pillaging, plundering and feasting. But Thorfinn is no ordinary Viking! He is always polite and happily offers to wash the dirty dishes. Too bad his dad is Harald the Skull-Splitter, Village Chief and the roughest and toughest Viking of them all.

In this first book of the series, his dad decides it's time for Thorfinn to earn his gruesome Viking name. Stuck on a longboat with a ragtag bunch of adventurers who'd like to throw him overboard, how will the Nicest Viking cope with a dangerous voyage to Scotland?

The book includes fun features like colour trading cards, puzzles and games like 'Discover your Viking Name'.
