After falling overboard from his longboat, Sigurd the Viking finds himself in modern-day Flotby - a small English seaside town. Finding refuge in the aptly named Viking Hotel, Siggy's attempts to embrace modern ways end in disaster. His attempt at romance is no better off as even the course of true love doesn't run smoothly when Siggy's involved!
Jeremy Strong is immensely popular with children, particularly boys, who love his unique brand of silliness. He won the Children's Book Award in 1997 with The Hundred-Mile-an-Hour Dog, and his books about Sigurd the Viking were made into a TV serial.
