Young readers are encouraged to take part in a literary battle as part of the JORVIK Viking Festival sixth Bloodaxe Book Challenge!
The book challenge, supported by Explore York Libraries and Archives, tasks children with reading four books between October and January.
Participants will collect a special ‘character’ sticker for each book they read, with stickers of Ingvar, Arnleif, Naila and Ragnar to collect. When all 4 are stuck on the special bookmarks you will get a free ticket to the JORVIK Viking Centre and the chance to meet Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, authors of the ‘Defender of the Realm’ series of books, during the 2018 JORVIK Viking Festival.
To get involved and take part in the Bloodaxe Book Challenge, go to your local Explore York Library and sign up!
