Containing colourful projects which support key curriculum work, 'Viking Activity Book' shows everything from how to make a warriors axe and yummy Viking pancakes to how to draw ancient runes.
Steve Weatherill: I trained in animation at the RCA and in a past life worked in advertising and drew a strip cartoon for the FT. With my wife, Sue, joint author of many of my books, and my two sons, I live in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside with a flock of geese, the inspiration for my picture book character Baby Goz (published by Frances Lincoln). I like to think that the humour I inject into my books makes sure that both children and adults enjoy them. For b small, with my wife, I have written the Crafty History Series and the Read & Play series. You might also catch me touring the UK with my 'roadshow', introducing children in schools and libraries to Baby Goz and my other characters. Sue Weatherill: I first started working with Steve on the Egyptian Activity book after a family visit to Egypt. I was useless at history at school so all the fascination of the subject suddenly hit me. I particularly enjoyed researching for the Prehistoric Activity book. I think it made me feel quite young. And I still can't walk down a pebbled drive without looking for fossils.
