‘Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer’ is the first of a new series by ‘Percy Jackson’ author Rick Riordan
As with his ‘Percy Jackson’ series, Riordan takes ancient myths as his inspiration for this new book. Norse mythology – with its flawed gods, epic battles and larger than life stories – provides excellent source material. The highly recommended website www.lovereading4kids.co.uk says: ‘The writing is concise, punchy, spiced with humour and the adventure is unbeatable !’
For ages 11+…but capable Y5 and Y6 readers could easily manage it.
