Sean has been reading Conrad Monk and the Great Heathen Army by Edoardo Albert



A light humorous tale of medieval England, where Vikings terrorised the Saxons, looting and pillaging as they went. Two monks, one devout, the other a total chancer and not really a monk at all, somehow find themselves having to travel through dangerous country to get to the Saxon King, to warn him of the Viking invasion.

Main Characters:

Conrad Monk: A schemer, selfish, and always looking to turn every situation to his own advantage. A plausible liar, there really are no redeeming features.

Brother Odo: Humble, honest, naïve in many respects, he is the complete opposite to Conrad, his manipulative companion.

The Vikings: A Danish horde, led by the three sons of Ragnar Lothbrok –  everyone flees before their mindless orgy of violence.
