the littlest viking

Though he’s the littlest in his tribe, Sven is fierce and is always up for anything.  What he loves best is a good yarn and his forte is storytelling.  He’s used to ruling the roost until a baby sister makes inroads into his world.  Suddenly there’s crying all the time and the little warrior princess cannot be soothed.  But Sven has an idea.

We are longtime fans of Isabel’s work and her use of color and pattern really sings in this one.  Her palette of verdant greens reminds us of Scandinavia’s warmer season with some ruddy counterpoints thrown in to represent the fiery but sweet temperament of Sven’s little sister.

The Littlest Viking was written by Alexandra Penfold, illustrated by Isabel Roxas and published by Knopf Books for Young Readers.
