Publisher Summary

A hilarious and empowering picture book about a small but strong Viking girl who is determined to be a warrior and make a name for herself. 

Filled with humor and heart, this clever picture book about perseverance and following your dreams stars Helga, a small but mighty (and loud) Viking. Helga, along with her sidekick, Wolvie, 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!
