Autor Francesca Simon
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 3 mai 2012
Freya is an ordinary girl living in modern Britain, but with a twist: people still worship the Viking gods. 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.

Children will love the banter, the darkness and physicality of the tale
A wildly original, rollicking twist on Norse mythology
Guaranteed to bring gales of laughter
Breathtaking, magical storytelling. I loved this book
