Vikings in the Supermarket product reviews

What would Vikings use instead of horns for their helmets? What would a mermaid do with a shoe

What colour would a king paint his castle? And what does a tidy pirate do on washing day? All these questions answered (and more!) in this fantastically funny collection of poems by Nick Sharratt, with his own inimitable illustrations. Jokes on every page!

I was so excited to get a hold of this book recently. My kids are huge Nick Sharratt fans and we have so many of his books. They are always silly and funny and often a little naughty too. In a lot of ways I think Sharratt just gets kids, and presents them with books they really want to read.

I showed this book to my eldest daughter and she jumped about excitedly. She knew straight away who had illustrated the book. Sharratt's illustrations are so distinctive you could easily pick them out of a book line-up. The drawings are simple so they don't have a lot of detail to them, but they are always vibrant and filled with emotion. It's amazing to me how much he can convey in a single line smile.

Going into the book we didn't realise it would have 6 poems inside. The cover does say that there was 6 tasty poems but it's printed quite small on the banana's stickers. As I launched into the Vikings in the Supermarket story, we were so excited to see what would happen. The story itself was very quick but was also so funny. Both of my kids were laughing at the end of the poem and my youngest happily pointed out all of the food that was bought and what they had done to it. This caused more giggles as they looked at each Viking.

Further into the book there was truly something for each of my girls. They had different favourite poems, though they each enjoyed the poems as a collection as well. There is one about a vampire bat that started out a little worrying, but has a silly finish and was a favourite for my eldest. She liked it heaps as she is very into scary stories right now. My youngest liked the poem about the grey Castle. She really loved all the paint and thinking about what colour the castle should be.

I liked that this book is six separate poems. It's like having a book of short stories. You don't have to read the whole thing in one sitting either. So I have read it in one go, but then if the kids are playing up and not getting ready for bed as quickly then they get one or two poems only. They don't feel like they missed out on a book because the stories in the poems are complete and silly fun. But I don't feel like they are getting to sleep too late. And of course they are fun to read as well which helps.

The perfect read for anyone who's ever wondered where they came from and where they might be going next.
