How to be a Hero by Cat Weldon, illustrated by Katie Kear
A no-good Viking thief. The worst-ever trainee Valkyrie. A hilarious case of mistaken identity.
When failing trainee Valkyrie Lotta mistakes an unconscious Viking thief, Whetstone, for a fallen hero and takes him triumphantly to Valhalla, things are definitely not on track to be epic or glorious. Having lost a precious talking cup, Whetstone must cover up his mistake and the two embark upon a quarrelsome journey to find it. But Loki the trickster God is determined to get his hands on the cup and plans to unleash chaos across the nine worlds. Can Whetstone prove himself a hero after all when it matters most?
This is the first in a laugh-out-loud high-stakes fantasy adventure series about friendship and bravery set in the world of the Norse Gods from debut author Cat Weldon.
