Helga is a small but mighty (and loud) Viking, and along with her sidekick, Wolvie, she wants to be a warrior just like her favorite hero, Ingrid the Axe. But she is a farmer’s daughter and the only battles she fights are pretend. So when Ingrid the Axe comes to town looking for new recruits, Helga jumps at the chance.
She and Wolvie find the competition to be fierce. But Helga is fierce too, and single-minded in her desire to make a name for herself. After all she is a WARRIOOORRRR! Filled with humor and heart, this clever picture book about perseverance and following your dreams is hilarious and empowering, and stars a girl who proves that large size and great might don't always come in the same package!
Whether it’s bedtime, fish-pickling time, or her monthly bathtime, Helga continually craves stories about her favorite Viking warrior, Ingrid the Axe. Her parents, however, are quick to point out that 'Warriors do not come from small mountain villages like ours'.... Fortunately, Helga’s talents shine through, earning her infamy and the eponym Helga the Howler. An author’s note gives Vikings some context, and there are even recommended books and pertinent websites for further reading." — Kirkus Reviews
