The Sleeping Army PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Sleeping Army free pdf One of the bestselling children's authors in the world, the creator of the "Horrid Henry" series, launches an exciting new novel for children aged 8 . Freya is an ordinary girl living in modern Britain, but with a twist: people still worship the Viking gods. She's caught in her parents' divorce, and shuttling between bickering adults is no fun. One evening, stuck with her dad on his night shift at the British Museum, she is drawn to the Lewis Chessmen and Heimdall's Horn. Unable to resist, she blows the horn, waking three chess pieces from their enchantment- the slaves Roskva and Alfi, and Snot the Berserk. They are all summoned to Asgard, land of the Viking gods, and told they must go on a perilous journey to restore the gods to youth. If Freya refuses she will be turned into an ivory chess piece but, if she accepts her destiny and fails, the same terrible fate awaits her. This is brilliantly funny, original and a wholly new take on the Norse myths - and the travails of contemporary family life.
