I’ve been wanting to make some more of these for a while, because I do love my books, and I love making people read books. Books are good for your brain.

This series of 3 is a downloadable A4 PDF with handy-dandy crop marks, so print it on decent photo paper and have at it with a pair of scissors. If you don’t have a good printer at home, stealth into work early (or stay late) and misappropriate office resources. In fact, print lots of copies, and leave them everywhere. Book Candy!

The Viking Warrior

The Viking Warrior

· Intrepid Explorer of the Seven Seas ·

It has been a few days since I was near enough to an internet machine to post an update. I left on a rainy afternoon in a small raft, following the Great Southern Tuna migration through the icy Northern seas. I was hoping to catch something worthy of a great sandwich: Tuna, sweetcorn, mayonnaise and chilli flakes. Accompanied with honey mead, this is a kingly meal; but it does require a kingly tuna to make it.

For days and nights I battled high seas, bitterly cold all the while, until my little tub was bested by a great leaping narwhal. And but for the bravery and tenaciousness of Mary C. it would have been the end of me: she is truly worthy of the title Viking Warrior.

So now I am safely home (a little soggy & salty) with no tuna for my sandwich, but a pot of hot vegetable soup is bubbling away to stave of the savage wintry darkness inside me – an isolating, solitary darkness only a true sailor could understand. And a certain Narwhal has a new nemesis.

In honour of this momentous story, a fellow viking warrior had me scribble this tale of bravery so that the heroics of +Mary C. would be forever remembered.
